(Artemisia vulgaris) A popular herb from Asia. A large plant. Reputed remedy for women's complaints at least as far back as the ancient Roman naturalist Pliny. Makes a large, rather aggressive plant.

Review:

I agree with the others that this plant can be a nightmare. I have no idea why Baker considers it "rare" as it is actually an invasive in my area. I'm a professional gardener and one of my clients took an herbalism class and decided to grow this on her property. I warned her against it but she was convinced we could control it by cutting off the seed heads. We did that but it still managed to spread and now is showing up all over her 5 acres. The worst is it is now taking over her beautiful 2 acre wildflower meadow/. Just pulling it makes it worse because all the broken roots that are left in the ground become new mugwort plants. I figure it costs her at least $1,000 a year for all the mugwort maintenance we have to do to keep this plant in check. Do yourself a favor and pick it from wild area if you want to use it as an herb and do not bring it into your gardens -- unless you love to weed or don't mind paying someone to do it for you.

What are the pros? It's pretty

What are the cons? VERY aggressive

Review:

4 Stars for Easy to Grow, 4 Stars for Early Maturity, because once it gets a good grip on your soil it's impossible to remove. Besides self seeding, it spreads by the root system - rather like a rhyzome (but it's not) Every root you break when pulling just creates more individual plants, until you have a mat of roots crowding out even the most agressive of the weeds. If you have a piece stuck to your boot and it drops off in another bed.... MUGWORT If you use a weeding tool (any sort) each cut left behind makes more... MUGWORT 11 years back I tilled up a fresh bed 4x4' - not knowing. I've got about 20x5' strip of the stuff now. Weeding will not end it, soil sifting won't filter all the roots. Roundup won't kill it for long. Solarization doesn't go deep enough. Landscape cloth won't block it, visqueen won't even slow it down. Dense cover cropping only holds it back until termination time. I'm trying Diakon Radish And it LOVES, cardboard & mulching lasagna method weed suppression.

What are the pros? Nothing to recommend!

What are the cons? Very invasive!

Review:

Do Not Grow This! You will regret it. This plant is highly invasive and will destroy your gardens. I mean it will take over and no amount of pulling, smothering, chemicals etc. will get rid of it. I have been fighting it for years and it just comes back.

I Planted this next to my semi shady chicken coop. The shade controls the growth and the plant controls worms and parasites in chickens.

Review:

When I finally identified the weed that had taken over my lawn and most of one of my flower beds, I was interested to find out that it was also a medicinal herb used since ancient times. However, mugwort is not interesting or useful enough to justify planting it in any garden other than that of your worst enemy's. It is incredibly invasive--even in my light sandy soil it is a real bear to pull up, because the brittle, long underground roots extend several feet in every direction and must be thoroughly removed to prevent them giving rise to new plants. 3 years' worth of attempts to thoroughly remove this weed by hand pulling have only served to (barely) keep it from overtaking the entire yard. I also made the poor choice of planting a Chrysanthemum 'Cambodian Queen' in the same bed near where it occurs...it is extremely difficult to tell it apart from the emerging Chrysanthemum offshoots when I am weeding, as the leaves are very, very similar. What a pain.
