Artemisia: Ngai, or àicǎo (艾草 zh:艾草) in Mandarin.
艾草 in Mandarin. mugwort growing really nicely even in winter
used in the practice of traditional Chinese medicine in a pulverized and aged form called moxa.
I talked about Tu Youyou (Chinese: 屠呦呦; who found a cure for Malaria using the herb qinghao (Artemisia annua, sweet wormwood). The two plants look so alike.
