Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ARTEMISIA vulgaris 'Janlim'(ORIENTAL LIMELIGHT) PP12788
Common Wormwood, Mugwort, Oriental Limelight Mugwort
This variegated form of the weedy common wormwood has pretty enough golden variegated foliage but is profoundly invasive in the garden and beyond. It is next to impossible to get rid of once it takes hold. Plants aggressively spread via underground stems, called rhizomes, which form large matted colonies—even the smallest rhizome left in the ground will result in a new plant.
Common Wormwood is an herbaceous perennial that originates from areas across Europe, Africa, Asia and arguably northwestern North America. It has naturalized as an invasive species across many parts of North America. Its foliage is deeply dissected and fragrant, and plants produce many inconspicuous, tiny wind-pollinated flowers in summer. Oriental Limelight is only slightly less aggressive than wild plants and should only be grown in above-ground planters that will keep its rhizomes contained.
This wormwood will tolerate a wide range of growing conditions from low-light levels to poor soils. If it breaks free and overcomes your garden, the only way to get rid of it is to either manually dig it out—making sure that no roots remain—or to smother it with opaque black, mulch cloth for a growing season.
