This is a series of artworks based on plants and herbs I Illustrated for The Eden Project, Cornwall. They were eventually made into authentic mediterranean style ceramic tiles and feature along one of the long walls in the Med’ Biome.
Any of these prints will compliment the home although I would envisage them being a nice touch to Kitchen or Dining areas.
Absinthe,Artemisia absynthium is native to temperate regions of Eurasia and Northern Africa and widely naturalized in Canada and the northern United States. It is grown as an ornamental plant and is used as an ingredient in the spirit Absinthe as well as some other alcoholic drinks.
Artemisia absinthium is a herbaceous, perennial plant with fibrous roots. The stems are straight, growing to 0.8–1.2 metres (2 ft 7 in–3 ft 11 in) tall, grooved, branched, and silvery-green. The leaves are spirally arranged, greenish-grey above and white below, covered with silky silvery-white trichomes, and bearing minute oil-producing glands; the basal leaves are up to 25 cm long, bipinnate to tripinnate with long petioles, with the cauline leaves (those on the stem) smaller, 5–10 cm long, less divided, and with short petioles; the uppermost leaves can be both simple and sessile (without a petiole). Its flowers are pale yellow, tubular, and clustered in spherical bent-down heads (capitula), which are in turn clustered in leafy and branched panicles. Flowering is from early summer to early autumn; pollination is anemophilous. The fruit is a small achene; seed dispersal is by gravity. Growing naturally on uncultivated, arid ground, on rocky slopes, and at the edge of footpaths and fields.
