Mugwort abounds on hedgebanks and waysides in most parts of England. It is a tall-growing plant the stems which are angular and often of a purplish hue frequently rising 3 feet or more in height.

The flowers are in small oval heads with cottony involucres and are arranged in long terminal panicles they are either reddish or pale yellow.
