Description: Wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium (absinthe wormwood, wormwood, common wormwood, green ginger or grand wormwood)) is a species of Artemisia, native to temperate regions of Eurasia and northern Africa. It's an herbaceous, perennial plant with fibrous roots. The stems are straight, growing from 0.8–1.2 metres (2 ft 7 in–3 ft 10 in) or even over 1.5 m in rare instances. The stems are tall, grooved, branched, and silvery-green. The leaves have a spiral arrangement to them with greenish-grey above and white below, covered with silky silvery-white trichomes, and bearing minute oil-producing glands; the basal leaves are up to 25 cm long, bipinnate to tripinnate with long petioles, with the cauline leaves. Its flowers are pale yellow, tubular, and clustered in spherical bent-down heads (capitula), which are in turn clustered in leafy and branched panicles. Flowering is from early summer to early autumn; pollination is anemophilous. The fruit is a small achene; seed dispersal is by gravity. It grows naturally on uncultivated, arid ground, on rocky slopes, and at the edge of footpaths and fields.
