It looks like some kind of Artemesia but a picture of the whole plant would help.

Doesn't look like tarragon to me. I've been growing tarragon for years. I'm thinking some kind of Artemisia, too. Does it have a fragrance/odor?

It looks very similar to Artemesia "Silver King", a variety of A. ludoviciana.
It is often dried and used in wreaths and dry flower arrangements.

Also very similar to Mugwort Artemisia vulgaris (a common weed).
