The common mugwort grows between 60 cm and 2 meters high. With its yellow-white-brown flowers, it is often found on stony to clayey soils, such as embankments, roadsides and gravel sites. The release of the pollen usually happens in the morning between 6 and 11 a.m. and is spread by the wind. Because of its spicy aroma, mugwort is often used in the kitchen as a seasoning for a wide variety of dishes.
