Deerstalker, where do you live?  Varieties of mugwort can be found more or less world-wide, plus it is very easy to grow

I wonder if it is one of those introduced invasive species. Don't forget it causes allergies.

where I live, mugwort is a native. It is not like the many European "weeds" that are so invasive, like mustards.  As for allergies, yes, many members of the sunflower family cause allergies.

We have some here but where I found it didn't look like a healthy place to gather. I bought some seeds online, planting them here at up at the northern retreat...

The early settlers brought with them the herbs they used at home. Unfortunately or maybe fortunately depending on how you look at it they spread like crazy. The English are having trouble with crayfish brought to England from the US. I think Florida has the most invasive species. Anything from no legs to multiple legs. Some of them own condos. Tongue

Seeds are certainly available and I guess its escaped from plantings in gardens, I'll start paying more attention.
