SWEET WORMWOOD, SWEET ANNIE, QING HAO, ARTEMISIA ANNUA (L.)
Sweet wormwood is a close relative of wormwood, (Artemisia absinthum), mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), southernwood, (A. abrotanum) and tarragon (A. dracunculus) to name but a few in the genus. They are all Asteraceae or in the daisy family of plants. Apuleius, who was a Berber living in what is now Algeria in the 2nd century AD wrote that this genus of Artemisia got its name from the goddess of hunting, Artemis in Greek, Diana in Latin. He describes how she gave these herbs to Chiron the centaur who practised medicine, for the benefit of the human race. The herb centaury is named after Chiron.
