Artemisia campestris, or Field Sagewort, is most of the United States. It is a biennial, or short-lived perennial. It grows in fields, along roadsides and railroads and in other open, sandy areas. It blooms in mid summer into fall, with small green-yellow flowers.

This plant looks similar to some other members of the Artemisia genus. More information will be posted at a later time about differentiating other species.
