This plant will grow as a perennial in U.S.D.A. plant hardiness zones 4 through 9. This plant will grow in heights ranging between 30 to 47 inches tall. Artemisia "Oriental Limelight" is very well suited as an accent plant, in border areas, or even as a container-grown perennial. Both deer and rabbits are deterred by the fragrance of the leaves, which makes it a good choice if you're plagued by animals which tend to ravage plants. The flowers are a whitish/brown color and are nondescript. The striking foliage is the visual interest, when growing this varigate variety of mugwort.
When planting this plant, make sure that it is planted in a location that receives full sun, regular moisture, and good drainage. These conditions are the key to growing a healthy stand of artemisia "Oriental Limelight" perennials in your yard, flower garden, or landscape. This plant will do well in a variety of soil conditions, but seems to grow well in sandy, loam and clay in a pH range from acidic to alkaline. Even though areas with full sun are best, artemisia "Oriental Limelight" can also grow in areas that are partly sunny. Mature plants will have a spread ranging 30 to 35 inches. When planting the cuttings, make sure to space them 20 to 30 inches apart, which will create a dense stand without overcrowding the plants.
Artemisia "Oriental Limelight" is a very low-maintenance plant, which does not require excessive coaxing in order for it to grow well. Make sure to cut back the foliage to the soil line using a pair of sharp shears, between May-June, as by doing this will encourage the new growth throughout the summer and fall. This will prevent the plants from becoming too leggy and drooping over in the late portion of the growing season.
Artemisia "Oriental Limelight" has a tendency to spread out from the are in which it was originally planted.
Make sure to plant this perennial in areas where the growth can be controlled, confined, or contained to keep it from growing out into an area you did not want it to. This plant can be planted in planters, sunken containers, lined garden beds, box gardens, or raised flower beds. The flowers that may appear at various times during the growing season can be easily removed using gardening shears, scissors, or pruners.
This plant makes a wonderful ground cover, which will grow out and spread fast. Also makes an ideal choice for planting beneath taller growing trees, plants, and bulbs to help retain moisture and act as a barrier for weeds. A wonderful addition to any flower garden and a must-have for anyone who is looking for a plant like this to plant in their garden.
