Artemisia vulgaris Oriental Limelight = 'Janlim'
Wormwood - 11 cm
Artemisia vulgaris Oriental Limelight = 'Janlim' is grown for its colourful bright creamy-yellow and green, jagged, aromatic foliage. It combines effectively with strong-coloured flowering plants and purple-leaved shrubs and perennials in mixed borders, but can be invasive. It makes a good impact in a pot on its own, which may be a preferable option!
Height and spread around 60-90cm by 45cm (2-3ft x 18in). Must have good drainage, but succeeds best in soil which retains some moisture in summer. Tolerates light shade. Cut back by a third of its height in late spring to promote fresh growth. The flowers are insignificant and best removed. Never allow to seed.
British nursery grown.
