Hi, Can anyone identify this plant which has appeared at the back of my garden?.

Can't work out if it is a weed or not. It stand about 3 foot tall has spear-like flower heads which have not bloomed yet.

    Reminds me of one of the wild Artemisias

    Artemisia vulgaris ? I think it's called Mugwort or Wormwood ?

  • Not sure it is. I have just looked this up and it doesn't look the same.

    I think it is an Artemisia but not sure which one.  What part of the world are you in Phil?

    East Anglia
  • Centre of England, a village named MERIDEN, close to Coventry and Birmingham.

    After further investigation, I think it is probably Mugwort and is apparently invasive, so its gotta go I'm afraid!.
