Chinese Mugwort, Artemisia verlotiorum Lamotte, is known in Belgium since 1937 when it was found on rough ground in Brussels (Matagne 1938). It remained very rare and poorly known for quite a long time but it is obviously increasing in recent times (Verloove 2003). Artemisia verlotiorum, like our native A. vulgaris L., belongs with Artemisia section Artemisia (“the Artemisia vulgaris-complex”), a large group of closely related and still insufficiently understood species with many representatives in the Asian Far East.
