Tarragon or dragon's-wort (Artemisia dracunculus) is a perennial herb in the family Asteraceae related to wormwood. Corresponding to its species name, a common term for the plant is "dragon herb." It is native to a wide area of the Northern Hemisphere from easternmost Europe across central and eastern Asia to India, western North America, and south to northern Mexico. The North American populations may, however, be naturalised from early human introduction. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.

Tarragon is a member of the Asteraceae (Compositae) family and is closely related to Common Wormwood (Artemesia absinthium), Wormwood (A. annua), Mugwort (A. vulgaris), and Sagebrush (A. tridentate). This family contains many weeds of great importance in allergy, e.g., Mugwort.

Tarragon is a perennial herb cultivated for its aromatic leaves, used as a seasoning, in salads, in the preparation of Tarragon vinegar, etc.

Tarragon may uncommonly induce symptoms of allergy in sensitised individuals. Although reactions may be rare, they may also often be overlooked. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
