Growing Condition 生長條件
Full sun, perennial. Prefers well-drained, slightly moist soil. Tolerates partial shade and dry soil but does not tolerate wet soil. Grow mugwort in containers as mugwort roots grow by root spreading and can become invasive. Do not grow mugwort close to other plants with shared soil as mugwort roots release chemicals that inhibit the growth of surrounding plants.
Can be used as aromatic herb in soups, stews, meat dishes, or infused as tea. An ingredient of Qingtuan (a form of dumpling, snack from Southern China).
