Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

41. Wormwood
(Artemisia absinthium L.)

41. Wormwood

The foliage of the strongly aromatic wormwood is more showy than the flowers. It is a leafly plant, two to three feet tall, the leaves cut into pointed segments and silky on both sides. The composite flower-heads, in silky, drooping racemes, are inconspicuous. This is a much less common plant than the mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), whose leaves are dark green above and whitish beneath. Both plants flower in the late summer.
