Wormwood ID Request
    #7080633 - 06/22/07 07:20 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I recently bought some woormwoods from two different sellers and have clearly gotten two different species. Any help you guys can offer?

From one reputable dealer, whom I confronted, and was assured money back that they were indeed Artemesia absinthium, I got these seedlings... (I need to put some manure and mulch down because the soil is poor and is splashing up on the plants during rain, ugh).


Then from some other guy I got about 6 seedlings that look like this. From all the pictures I find it hard to identify because when the plants grow they seem to share qualities of both these specimens. I trust the people who sold me the first set, but the latter I'm not so sure... You think either of these is wormwood?

The plants in the first three pictures definitely look like A. absinthium to me. The second plants are also Artemisia, but I don't know the species. Maybe one of those ornamental hybrids they're selling?

The first ones are wormwood, the second look like they also contain the same chemicals, but so do a lot of plants. Can't really tell by looking.

What do they smell and taste like?

They are very bitter. My mother knew about wormwood from when she lived in Europe. She said the first sample taste ans smell like wormwood did, but the second seedlings look more like the plant. Who knows. I think Ill throw them both in the batch I distill, see how that goes...
