Artemisia Absinthium (Wormwood) This is a perennial plant, with a woody root, branched at the crown, and having numerous fibres below.  The whole herb is covered with close, silky hoariness; the stems are numerous, bushy, and from one to two feet in height.  Their lower part exists for some years, from which young shoots spring forth every year, decaying in cold weather.  The leaves are alternate, broadish, and blunted, the lower ones on long petioles, upper ones on shorter, broader, and somewhat winged ones.
