Help! Artemisia pontica..

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a source for artemisia pontica they'd be willing to share? We've recently used the last of ours and I'm unable to find a vendor who has it in stock to tide us over until our harvest is ready in late June.

There are one pound bags for sale on eBay, not sure how many they have available though.

 I saw 150 gram bags (I feel like Im back in college) but nothing larger. Also that looks like grand but it's difficult to tell from the photo

Have you tried him?

Thanks for the link. I think I googled for every permutation of "absinthe petite wormwood roman pontica" except what's on that site.  Odd.

He's really giving it the hard sell, amazing he has any left in stock....

"This imported Roman, Petite absinthe (Pontica) is the best imported pontica  I can source, it looks like saw dust, smells like saw dust and is nothing like what I grow myself"

Where would I go to acquire a plant or two of quality wormwood of my very own?

I got mine from Perennial Pleasures in Vermont (https://perennialpleasures.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Perennial-Pleasures-Catalog.pdf). Took a couple of years to get established but looks great now. For a. absintheum I got starts from Loghouse and also grew some from seed from Strickly Medicinal, the Log House plants seem truer to type https://loghouseplants.com/plants/shop/artemisia-wormwood-artemisia-absinthiumn-2/

Seeds are easy to get: https://www.amazon.com/Wormwood-Artemisia-absinthium-Seed-Needs/dp/B002TTGO3C

Not a really good option for 1-2 plants though. Want to start a farm, all good. :)

Ive never seen pontica offered as seed, only rhizomes.

Following up to my own post... I got my pontica at absintheherbs.com. Good people to work with. I just wish it weren't so damn expensive!
