Artemisia franserioides, the ragweed sagebrush[3] or bursage mugwort, is a North American species of plants in the sunflower family. It is native to the southwestern United States (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Oklahoma) as well as northern Mexico (Chihuahua).[4]

Artemisia franserioides is a biennial or perennial growing up to 100 cm (40 inches) tall. It is faintly aromatic, with many small, hanging flower heads. It grows in conifer forests.[2][5]

The specific epithet franserioides is derived from Latinized Greek, meaning resembling the genus Franseria.[2] Franseria is now a synonym of Ambrosia (ragweeds).
