Attaching a collage of Artemisia vulgaris (INDIAN WORMWOOD/ NAGDOANA). I saw this plant for the first time at Tezpur in 2002 next meeting was at Binnaguri in 2004. I found a bush here other day. I intend to upload flowers once the plant is in bloom.


I'am not very sure that it's A.vulgaris. Leaves don't seem to match.
We should have more images...

It is not cultivated. It is growing on the road side. I saw it at Binnaguri in 2004 and In Tezpur in 2001.
Those were also road side plant. Scientists at Defence Research Laboratory ( D R L ) at Tezpur told me it was Artemisia vulgaris.

1: the leaf should be silvery on the undersurface, esp the older leaves
2: the flowers are scented 

Leaves in this case are silvery.
On crushing leaves emits a distinctive smell.
I will wait for the flowers. The place is at a distance, but I go to that area on bi cycle at times.
please dont jeopardize your  health, no need to take the bicycle there. you dont have to prove it, i had agreed with you already.
