NYBG EcoFlora October EcoQuest Challenge


Common Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) is a Eurasian perennial in the Sunflower family (Asteraceae). Multiple introductions to North America beginning in the 1600s and subsequent genetic crossing have resulted in a range of morphological diversity, especially in leaf form. Outside its native range it is highly invasive, spreading by seed and underground rhizomes and forming monocultures.

Hi Daniel,

Just today a blogger I follow posted this photo of bright red mugwort buds. I've never seen such a thing before, have I just missed them? Do they actually do this before opening? https://nhgardensolutions.files.wordpress.com/2020/09/8.-mugwort-buds.jpg?w=500&h=365

@srall. Interesting. My guess is a fungus or virus. By the position in relation to the styles, those may be deformed stamens.
