Southernwood is a woody, perennial, fern-like garden herb with highly aromatic, grey-green foliage. It has a strong, citrus-camphor fragrance when brushed or crushed and it can add an exquisite sharpness to sauces and vinegars. It also adds a delicious flavour to m eat and poultry, although it should be used sparingly to avoid overpowering the other flavours.

Plant Southernwood in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. It is excellent for growing in herb gardens, bedding and borders to add some textured foliage.
