Monks Hood Edward Evans2020-08-05T07:03:25+01:00August 4th, 2020|3 Comments A lot of this around at the moment. 3 Comments Steve August 5, 2020 at 6:57 am - Reply This is Mugwort. Very common. But do look out for Wormwood, very similar but with whiter leaves and round drooping flowers rather than the upright tube flowers. There is (or was) Monkshood up Ripponden Old Bank.

Thanks Cath Rawnsley.Pemberton August 26, 2020 at 5:13 pm - Reply Definitely mugwort, not monkshood (I’ve seen that growing in gardens, but not wild). Mugwort tends to grow on dusty roadsides and pavement edges. I t was also one of the most revered Saxon magical herbs and is said to counter negativity.
