Artemisia nesiotica is a species of sagebrush known by the common name island sagebrush.

It is endemic to the three of the eight Channel Islands of California. This is a small shrub growing up to about half a meter tall and generally rounded in shape. It produces several thin, upright stems from a woody base. The foliage is made up of woolly leaves divided into many thin, flat, threadlike segments. The inflorescence is a narrow cluster of several flower heads. The fruit is a tiny resinous achene with a pappus of hairs.
