Yomogi (Artemisia princeps), packet of 200 seeds, organic


Family: Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 9

(Japanese Mugwort, Kui-hao, Ssuk) Herbaceous perennial native to Japan.  Will flower to the height of 5 feet, but can be kept tidily trimmed back.  Like most Artemisias, this plant is stoloniferous and will soon produce a robust patch unless you keep it contained in a pot.  The plant does well in pots.  Source of moxa used in moxibustion.  Also a culinary herb, used in small amounts to flavor mochi, soups and rice.  Excellent smudging plant used as a cold-hardy substitute to white sage, producing a smooth and cooling smoke that purifies the air and dispels negativity. Sow in spring.  Press very tiny seed into surface of soil and keep evenly moist and in the light until germ.

    I love this plant! We bought seeds the first year you offered it and I grew it out in my herb garden in Athens County OH, where it continues to thrive. That garden is a mostly shaded garden in the midst of Appalachian forest, where 4 other species of artemisias also grow. In 2014, I moved to Ithaca NY, and my new garden sits on top of a ridge overlooking Ithaca and Cayuga Lake. Because it was once farmed, there are not many trees and we get a lot of westerly winds across the garden, and a lot more snow. The root divisions from the OH garden have thrived here in raised beds and open sun. It is very care-free, and willingly re-seeds. In the woodland garden it actually thrives better than A. vulgaris. Yomagi makes great medicine and and is a wonderful smudging plant as well. But one of the things I like best is wandering through the patch in summer and burying my face in its 5 foot branches. A heavenly experience.
