Mugwort, wormwood - by either name, a real problem

September 9, 2020
Mugwort plant

Invasive species Artemisia vulgaris.

Q. I am curious if you have an idea about a weed that grows in our yard every year. It spreads very rapidly, seems invasive and grows to a pretty high level as summer goes along. We have asked many people, and they are quite stumped. My wife does not like it, and we pull it and spray it, but it just keeps coming back, spreading and invading. Also, it seems to transplant to other parts of the yard when we transplant hosta. Any advice you have will be most welcomed! – J.A., Monticello, Indiana
