Artemisia Absinthium Wormwood is very popular throughout Europe. I have seen many varieties of wormwood growing in Russia & Ukraine as well. Wormwood is well known and used in Europe for medicinal use, besides its storied use in Absinthe. In fact, my wife used to pick wormwood in the forest and fields and sell it to the local apothecary for a little spending money as a child.
