How to Plant White Mugwort Artemisia Seeds
Sow Artemisia: Sow seed in cell packs or 2 in. 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 ft. apart.
Grow Artemisia: Full or part sun. Unlike other Artemisia, 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 ft. or less tall. Provided sun and ample moisture, plants can reach 6 ft. or more tall.
Dip freshly cut stems into boiling water for long-lasting cut flowers. For dried flowers, hang stems in a location with good air circulation. Blooms attract butterflies. Cut back plants by half to control size. Artemisia is deer and rabbit resistant.
