The seeds of sagebrush have been ground into a flower and mixed with other flowers. They tend to be bitter and are probably better avoided. Other plants in the Artemisia genus that grow in Colorado include French Tarragon (Anise scent) & Russian Tarragon (scentless). French Tarragon grows wild in the San Luis valley of Colorado. Russian tarragon looks identical but has no scent. | |
