Dakota Sage Mugwort (Artemisia ludoviciana) - Witching Plants
PLEASE NOTE, we will not ship these until weather permits! Plants are pulled from my personal propagation patch and include 3-4 rooted blades or rhizomes that will set and spread. These plants can be shocked when shipping and planting. Expect the foliage to wilt or dry out and experience transplant shock, but plant them and keep them well watered and they revive very quickly!
PRE-ORDERS WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL PLANT IS VIABLE (MID-FEBRUARY - APRIL) They May ship with minimal leafing if they are just meaning these are packed full of viable roots.

When your pants arrive, allow them to acclimate outside (in non frost weather) out of the direct sun. This will allow them to develop new roots before planting. Your plants were not cut from the ground, but pulled from rhizome roots. Keep them watered regularly and don’t let them dry out in their small pots, fully.
These are living plants and to ensure they arrive alive, make sure to choose priority shipping. When you receive your plant, make sure to bring it in from extreme temperatures and follow recommendations for each plant type. If your plant arrives dry, water immediately and place in a warm location with filtered light so it can adjust and not be shocked into it's new environment.
*Although we source high-quality herbs and roots, these are not intended for ingestion. Use at your own risk. Many of our live plants or seeds to grow on your own are toxic to handle or ingest.
