Artemisia vulgaris

Artemisia vulgaris
Common name mugwort
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers I don't let it
Size 3' or taller
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes not fussy

One of my top three weeds, in terms of pestilence and tenaciousness. It forms amazing root networks, and spreads quite quickly by its traveling roots. The foliage is very distinctively scented. I don't think I've managed to eradicate it from any of the places where it has gained a foothold, and believe me, I've tried.

This is a weed in our garden
