About This Plant
Artemisia absinthium, or Wormwood, as it is commonly known, belongs to the Artemisia genus which consists of more than 300 species. Artemesias are members of the Asteraceae family, though unlike their cousins, lack showy flowers and are more known as heavily scented foliage plants with bitter tastes. Many are covered with whitish hairs that give them a silvery, grayish look.
