Mugwort is a common name for several species of aromatic flowering plants in the genus Artemisia. In Europe, mugwort most often refers to the species Artemisia vulgaris, or common mugwort. While other species are sometimes referred to by more specific common names, they may be called simply "mugwort" in many contexts
Artemisia is relatively low maintenance, but it does have some preferences when it comes to their environment.
Soil: Artemisia are not particular about soil pH and they do not like overly rich soil. As with most silver-gray leaved perennials, they are very drought tolerant. They will need regular water, until the plants are established, but can take care of themselves after that. With a few exceptions, like Artemisia lactiflora, artemisias need well-draining soil. If left sitting it damp soil, they will decline and/or be short-lived.
Planting: Plants can be started from seed, divisions or cuttings. Many of the newer hybrids are sterile and the others won't grow true to seed.
Exposure: They will grow best in a full sun location, although most varieties can handle partial shade.
Since artemisia do not like rich soil, no supplemental fertilizer should be necessary, if you are regularly adding organic matter to your beds.
Perennial artemisias can be cut back in the fall or spring. Shrubby varieties should be pruned in the spring. They can handle being cut back hard if you want to keep their size in check.
Even non-woody artemisia can get floppy, especially after flowering. Give them a shearing mid-summer, to prevent them from splitting open in the middle.
Divide plants every two to three years, or when you start to notice the center beginning to die out.
