Artemisia scoparia Waldst. & Kit.,
Grows wild through out punja during summer and rains.
I guess ‘punja’ refers to Punjab.
It looks like an Artemisis species.
Could you pl. send the close ups pl. ?
I think this is Artemisia scoparia, which is quite common in Haryana and Punjab plains..
Pl. see if your close ups match with images of … at Artemisia scoparia
Thank you …

This one was shot from near IOCL Refinery, Panipat..
I hope this can be Artemisia scoparia..
kindly suggest the proper id..
efi page on Artemisia scoparia
Leaves and leaf like bracts seem to be pectinasect here …. can we think of Artemisia caruifolia Buch.-Ham. ex Roxb. (Artemisia carvifolia Buch.-Ham. ex Roxb. as per “Plants of Indian Himalayan Region, BSI, 2019). The species is distributed in Uttarakhand. while A. scoparia in HP.
May I request you to pl. have a look at … suggestion.
Please ignore my earlier id suggestion. because there are quite a number of Artemisia spp. in HP and Uttarakhand not listed in eFI.
Pleased do continue with the id you already think is the correct one. I apologize for this inconvenience.
