Artemesia absinthium ASTERACEAE
Wormwood has been used as a traditional bitter herb, but is now considered hazardous for internal use. Its attractive feathery, silver-green foliage is ornamental and can be used fresh or dried for flower arrangements. Wormwood repels cabbageworm butterflies, flea beetles, and clothes moths.
