Special features: Southernwood is an aromatic herb that is grown in herb gardens. It also may be effectively grown in borders or along walks or paths. Low hedge. Herb containers.

Culinary use: The young shoots were used to add flavour to pastries and puddings, while branches were used to dye wool a deep yellow hue.

Medicinal use: Southernwood is usually cultivated for its essential oil, which contains absinthol and is used in herbal teas, potpourris or medicinally.
