Defintely  Artemisia but this is a large and difficult genus
identification-wise.  In the past I relied upon
staff at the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew naming e.g. the pressed specimens we
gathered during the University of
Southampton Ladakh Expedition in 1980 to the Suru Valley (a duplicate set
of specimens was deposited in the herbarium of the
University of Kashmir at Srinagar).

Stewart in 'An Annotated Catalogue of the Vascular Plants of Pakistan and
Kashmir' (1972) lists 22 species of Artemisia.

The large flower-heads made me initially think of *A,macrocephala* but the
specimen here does not come close to
matching what I understand to be this species, flower or foliage-wise.

I have yet to spend much time scrutinising this genus in Ladakh, so would
be pleased if anyone can suggest possibilities
or knows which species it is, with confidence.

Best Wishes,

Chris Chadwell
