The anatomical features of conduits in plant xylem are important biological foundations for plants to maintain physiological activities and adapt to the environment. They are also an important physiological regulatory pathway to cope with climate change. The simulated precipitation was conducted during the growth period of Artemisia ordosica for two consecutive years (2020-2021) from May to September. In August 2021, samples of Artemisia ordosica were taken and processed. Specific indicators include the number of conduits, average conduit area, average conduit diameter, maximum conduit diameter, hydraulic diameter, conduit wall thickness, conduit density, and theoretical hydraulic conductance of Artemisia ordosica. The soil water content in layers of 0-60 cm in the corresponding plots was also measured. Then the dataset of anatomical characteristics of Artemisia ordosica conduit under simulated precipitation was obtained. The dataset includes: (1) geolocation of the sample site; (2) anatomical feature data of Artemisia ordosica under different precipitation treatments; (3) soil water content data in layers of 0-60 cm in different plots; (4) photos of the plots and Artemisia ordosica. The dataset is archived in .xlsx, .jpg, .docx, and .shp formats, and consists of 12 data files with data size of 12 MB (compressed into one file with 11.9 MB). The analysis paper based on the dataset was published at Acta Ecologica Sinica, Vol. 43, No. 16, 2023.
