      Hello Paul,
      The plant is highly variable even within ssp designations. It most closely resembles the archetype for Artemisia ludoviciana ssp. ludoviciana.

      Can you tell me if I can expect a sizeable first year plant from seed? Also if I should prune to improve size

      Hi there,
      Plants grown from seed attain usually only about half size (1 to 1.5 feet) the first year. Normally these are cut back in the fall to create a nice mound the following spring which then goes up to 3 feet and flowers later in the year. I recommend our plants if you want a quick result. Mugwort can be pruned, really, any time to make it less unruly. If you prune it, it usually gets smaller.
