Thearticle presents the data of a long-term introduction study of the four speciesnew for the collection of aromatic and medicinal plants of the Nikita BotanicalGardens: Artemisia abrotanum L., A. argyiHLév. & Vaniot, A. feddei HLév. & Vaniot, A. campestris L., widely used in traditional medicine. It is shown that under theconditions of introduction on the Southern coast of Crimea, these speciesretain their life form, undergo a full cycle of development, forming seeds,belong to the group of long-vegetative plants of spring-summer-autumn-greenphenoritotype with a mid-late summer flowering rhythm. According to theorganoleptic and tasting evaluation, the raw materials of these species do notcontain bitterness, which indicates the possibility of its use in the foodindustry. Leaves and inflorescences of all species contain easily extractedGinsberg hydrodistillation essential oil, the content of which varies from 0.28 %(A. campestris) to 0.9 % (A. feddei) on dry weight, which allowscharacterizing these species as sources of essential oil raw materials. Thebiochemical composition of the essential oil Artemisia abrotanum, A. argyiand A. feddei is dominated bymonocyclic and bicyclic monoterpenes (1,8-cyneole, camphor, artemisia-alcohol,etc.) and the almost complete absence of ketones, in particular ά- and β-thuion, whose presence in the essential oilrequires the extremely careful use of raw materials in medicinal collectionsand extracts. The research results can serve as an experimental justificationfor determining the direction of use of raw materials of these species.
