While specific data are lacking, most likely this species would store well at 32 to 36F.
This genus includes many species that are useful as ornamentals and herbs, including French tarragon (A. dracunculus), dusty miller (A. stellerana) and Sweet Annie (A. annua).
In mythology, Artemesia was the wife of Mausolus.
Sweet Annie is used in everlasting arrangements and wreaths but some people cannot tolerate the intense fragrance.
Foliage can be used fresh or dried. As a fresh product, flowers and/or foliage can be used.
The Compositae or aster family is vast, with over 20,000 species, and is also one of the most developed families. It was named Compositae because the flowers are actually a “composite” of many individual flowers into one head. Hence, when children pull one “petal” off at a time, saying “she/he loves me, loves me not”, they are actually removing a complete flower, not just a petal.
Recent Research Findings:
Gast (2000) noted that wilting is the most common reason vaselife ended and that flower food greatly extends vaselife compared to plain water.
