Please help me to identify this plant, thank you. If available, I would like to know the Latin name of this plant too, thank you.

Looks like Foeniculum vulgare Fennel (anise), but I do not see the bulbous growth at the base.

Looks like it belongs to the Apiaceae family and was intentionally planted rather than a weed. Does it have fragrance?

Either Artemisia, or Cosmos?

To me, this looks much more like a stand of cosmos; def. not fennel.

Sorry, that was a reference to appearance, not an ID...it is NOT Foeniculum vulgare.

Leaves don't look like Cosmos especially looking at symmetry of leaf segments. More chances of Artemisia abrotanum, which is widely cultivated as insect repellent.

Dog fennel refers to both Anthemis cotula (a much smaller plant) and Eupatorium capillifolium. The latter is much similar to above plant, but I think with much more robust stems.

Thank you all of you for your useful hints. Looks like it is a Artemisia scoparia, if not, a Artemisia capillaris or a Artemisia abrotanum. I am not sure if Artemisia scoparia = Artemisia capillaris. I would like to find out what is the difference between the three of them. Any suggestion ?

Perhaps this should help


All three have leaves with filiform segments. plants of A. capillaris are usually less than 1 m tall with purplish or reddish brown stems, glabrous, slender and one to few in number, segments of uppermost leaves are 0.3-0.5 mm broad, 8-12 mm long and have basal auricles. Plants of A. scoparia reach 1.3 m, much branched in lower part, yellowish to grayish seiceous-pubescent, ultimate segments 4-8 mm long, 0.2-0.3 mm broad, without auricles. A. abrotanum may grow up to 1.7 m tall, stems numerous from base, brown, glabrous or weekly hairy; leaves mostly on stem, dark green, segments filiform.
