Summary
It is widely distributed in Japan. In addition to the sweet fragrance from the grass, it was also used as a medicine for sprains and bruises, so it is used as an ingredient for sweets in Japan as Yomogi-Mochi (Mugwort rice-cake). Although it is in the Asteraceae family, its flowers are not very conspicuous.

Dyeing method
With iron mordant, you can get deep-greenish gray called “Rikyu-Nezumi” (利休鼠). Please boil the dye in boiling water for 15 minutes two times.
