About 360-400 species of annual or perennial herbs or small shrubs, mainly in the Northern Temperate Zone in Eurasia and North America of which about 200 in the FSU. Only a few are decorative. A. arbotanum L., old man, is an old medicinal and spice plant long in cultivation, A. dracunculus L. is a well-known spice plant and A. stelleriana Besser has ornamental application. Other species can be used, especially in extreme conditions because most species of the genus come from dry regions, with hot climates.
