So I'm shopping at the local greenhouse and I find this in the herb section. Not a big deal, but I got a kick out of it. The front of the card says "Wormwood" with the description "Repellent spice". The back of the card has the genus-species, and goes on further to say:

"Perennial. Small shrub. Insect repellent to moths and silverfish. Tea used to repel fleas. Decorative conrast foliage."

On sale for $2.93 each, and they looked healthy. No Pontica, but many other herbs used in the process.

I picked this little plant up at the Half Moon Bay Nursery today. We drove down because the coastal road (Hwy 1) just opened again yesterday after months of being closed due to a landslide at Devil's Slide. It was $4.98.
