Cone and Wormwood

Today was sunny and fine so I decided to have a walk down to Newgate Street co-op and get some shopping delivered.
The wormwood on Barrack Road is reaching its flowering peak at the moment.

When it starts to dry off the whole area starts to stink of wormwood. I can smell it on a warm day if I keep the windows open.
Here are a few bushes of it, with a discarded traffic cone, in what I call "the hedgerow". That narrow area of wooded land between Barrack Road and Castle Leazes.
There is another plant there with small dark leaves, which looks a bit like Yew?
