Artemisia verlotiorum

Artemisia verlotiorum (Chinese mugwort) is one of several species in the genus Artemisia which is native to East AsiaKamchatka, North Japan and China. It is an invasive weed, widespread in Europe, North Africa, Central and East Asia.

Etymology[edit]

It is named for Jean Baptiste Verlot, who first distinguished the plant from Artemisia vulgaris in 1877 and for his brother Pierre Bernard Verlot, and is sometimes referred to as Verlot's Mugwort.[1]

Description[edit]

It has oblong reddish to brown capitula, its stems are green and the leaves broader, lighter colored and denser on the stem. The plant is more strongly and pleasantly aromatic than Artemisia vulgaris.[2] It flowers very late in the summer, but reproduces mainly by stolons, thus forming thick groups. Chinese Mugwort shares the same habitat as Artemisia vulgaris, and both are very common.

Artemisia verlotiorum is often confused with Artemisia vulgaris ("common mugwort"), which is closely related.[3]
