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.

What are the pros? well, you can't kill it

What are the cons? pretty much everything else

Review:

Herb my fanny. More like invasive species. Mugwort is a weed. As in, plant this in your garden and watch it invade the root systems of your beautiful vegetables, shrubs, perennials, and what have you. I don't think it's fair to sell this stuff without a warning, as it will take dose after dose of roundup to eliminate it from your garden once it is established. I am a professional horticulturalist, and I have had to dig up entire perennial beds because the roots from a mugwort plant crept 30 feet through two stone walls and into a client's perennial bed. We have spent 4 years trying to eradicate it since the client first called us. Leave one piece of the root--one teeny, tiny piece--and the entire plant grows back. If you want to grow it in a pot, fine, just don't let it go to seed. And if you must put it in a bed, at least warn your neighbors so they have time to pave their entire property, because that's the only thing I can think of that will keep it at bay.

Strip off the top third of the leaves, crush and grind them with your hands, grind into the poison oak, about 3 days of applications for medium cases.

Review:

This was very easy to grow. This is a big plant so make sure you pick a good size area for it. I cultivated this stuff all summer and still going strong. I bet you could grow in any type soil. I grew mine in a nasty new area with a lot of clay and it is gigantic.
