A hardy plant, Beach Wormwood thrives in sand dunes, beaches, and dry prairie soil. Its genus name, Artemisia, comes from the Greek legend of Artemis, who so appreciated the virtues of this family of plants that she endowed it with her own name. Native Americans have made extensive use of the entire plant, using it for medicinal purposes ranging from the common cold to tuberculosis. The leaves are thought to contain a small amount of the substance known as thujone, which has healing properties when applied topically. The foliage of this plant also provides fodder for small animals and birds.
