Behind the Scenes

  • a strong-smelling annual or perennial, growing up to 5 feet tall, with an erect stem that is somewhat woody at the base. Alternate, coarsely toothed leaves are oblong to lance-shaped. Dense spikes of tiny greenish flowers of wormseed (August-November) are borne in the leaf axils.[2]
