Artemisia pattersonii, also known as Patterson sagewort or Patterson's wormwood, is a species of North American plants in the sunflower family. It grows in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico.[2][3]

Artemisia pattersonii is a mildly aromatic perennial up to 20 cm (8 inches) tall. Leaves are gray-green with fine, silky hairs. Heads are usually borne one at a time but sometimes more, generally nodding (hanging), yellow tinged with red. The species grows in alpine meadows at high elevations over 3500 meters (11,500 feet).[4]
