Southernwood is a showy perennial shrub with feathery light green foliage. It is an evergreen and very easy to grow. The foliage repels insects and has been traditionally used as a strewing herb in houses. The flowers are yellow, and inconspicuous, like tiny yellow fuzz balls. Southernwood is a wonderful plant for a beginner. Regular pruning will make it grow bushy; otherwise, it has a tendency to get leggy.
