This annual Mexican herb has a pungent aroma, spear-shaped, deeply toothed leaves and green flowers. It is also known as Wormseed, American Wormseed, Mexican Tea or Herba Sancti Mariae.

Epazote grows vigorously and prefers sandy soil with full sunlight, best planted in pots to control its growth. Epazote will grow out to have yellow-green flowers that appear in clusters and are known to attract beneficial insects.
