Artemisia stelleriana from Delhi, commonly sold in Nurseries in and around Delhi (and often exhibited in exhibitions) as lavender. Only when it flowers in November-December, can one know it is not lavender. Those who have seen lavender, however, can't be taken for a ride. Photographed from Khalsa College, Delhi.
