Perennials, 30–50 (–100) cm (densely cespitose), mildly aromatic (not rhizomatous, caudices subterranean, branches clothed with persistent leaf-bases). Stems relatively numerous, ascending, brown, simple, hairy.

Heads (3–10, erect or nodding, peduncles 0 or to 15 mm) in subcapitate to corymbiform arrays 1–5 × 2–4 cm. Involucres broadly campanulate, 3–4 × 3.5–5 mm. Phyllaries lanceolate (margins brownish), densely pilose. Florets: pistillate 4–5; bisexual 10–15; corollas yellow (3–5-toothed), 2–2.5 mm, glabrous or sparsely pilose.

Artemisia glomerata is similar to A. senjavinensis; it can be distinguished by its more deeply lobed leaves and sparser indument.
