Review:

I like this plant due to herb medicine use. I got this plan from friend. I cut leaf & put in water then keep in my house. It benefits to sleep & calm. I used 6-8 young leafs to make tea and drink in warm - when my period cause me not feeling comfortable. It relief the pain but not drink too much during u period time. 2 times a week. My old sister told me that she used the leaf to bending then put in hot water to make tea for drink 2/day/week, stop come back 1 month that cure her joint pain. She is 80's old now. I collect all leaf when comes in November. I keep it dry out in my house for benefit of its smell & give it out when people needs. Dry leaf Lemon grass ginger boil in hot water could benefit when U steam your body to cure cold sick in winter. To prevent grow wildly, you can grow in the pot.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Invasive

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.
