Artemisia anomala var. anomala is used in anti-inflammatory medicines.

Artemisia anomala "var. acuminatissima" (Y. R. Ling, Guihaia 12: 104. 1992; 渐尖奇蒿 jian jian qi hao) was described from Jiangxi and Zhejiang, and also occurs in Anhui, growing on forest margins and roadsides at low elevations. It is said to differ from var. anomala in having leaf blades elliptic-lanceolate or lanceolate and 18-22 cm long. However, the name was not validly published because no type was indicated (Vienna Code, Art. 37).
