Artist's Description

Well, Chernobyl (“Black Grass” in Russian, is common around the infamous, now abandoned city in Ukraine, named after this plant) is called as Common Wormwood, Felon Herb, Chrysanthemum Weed, Wild Wormwood, St. John’s Plant in English and Mogusa or Yomogi in Japan.
Native to temperate Europe, Asia, China, Japan and Northern Africa, invasive weed in North America on nitrogen-rich uncultivated habitats, waste places and roadsides.
Its uses as food, in herbal medicine, folklore and witchcraft, etc. are more numerous than what could even be listed here.
Be it enough here that the English “Common Wormwood” name refers to the insect repellent properties of the aromatic oils it contains.
