Sensational creamy-white flowers on dramatic 1-2 foot long plume-like panicles in late summer. The flower heads remain attractive well into the fall. They are excellent cut flowers for fresh or dried arrangements. Unlike other Artemisias, White Mugwort grows best in soil which does not dry out completely. Grows 4-5 feet tall and is evergreen in milder zones. Winter hardy to zone 4.
Sow seed in cell packs or 2 inch pots, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 60-65° F., germination is in 30-60 days. Transplant into the garden 2-3 feet apart.
Comments: Full or part sun. Unlike other Artemisias, White Mugwort prefers rich, moist (even wet) soils with good drainage. Develops a shrubby habit, is not invasive. In full sun with moderate to little water, plants average 4 feet or less tall. Provided sun and ample moisture, can reach 6 feet or more tall.
Cut back by half to control size. Dip freshly cut stems into boiling water for long-lasting cut flowers. For dried flowers, hang stems in a well ventilated area. Plants resist deer and rabbits. Flowers attract butterflies.
