Western Mugwort (Artemisia ludoviciana)
Family: Wormwood (Artemisia)
Patch-forming herbaceous perennial native to western and central US and Canada. The softly silvery-white and aromatic leaves give rise to dangling flowers of yellow. Used extensively by the Native Americans and currently much valued by local herbalists in the form of tea, spice, poultice and snuff. The plant is astringent, deodorant and very friendly to the touch—used in treating eczema, spider bite, stomachache, and menstrual woes. Plant prefers full sun to part shade and will thrive in dry, depleted soils.
