Can anyone help with this plant I.D.?

Debbie McKinstryJanice CJudy


I bought this 2 yrs. ago at a garden center in a small pot on clearance w/ no I.D. tag. None of my gardening neighbor's can identify it, it is now 10x 's larger than when I got it. It doesn't seem to flower but does have some kind of spike come up the center in mid-summer and it has varigated leaves of yellow, green, and white.

    I just dug all of it up and moved it to the edge of the yard, de-weeded it so I can place some other plants in that location. Yesterday a turkey wandered through it, anyone have any ideas?

    I don't know what this is...but I bought some year before last...and it's just about taken my garden over! I hate it...and I pull it out by the handfuls!

    It's very hard to see the leaf, but it looks like it could be a type of artemesia, which would explain its rampant growth.

    Tammy, I think you might be confusing this with creeping buttercup because of the yellow flowers in the picture.

    If it is creeping butter cup kill it as it will send runners out on top as well as underground!

    Thank you Douglas! You are right again. I did a search on google for artemisia and found my exact plant, it is invasive in my yard at least, so glad I moved it all yesterday.

    There are plant and flower identifying Apps You can take a picture in the app and it will search for the plant and tell you all you want to know about the plant/ flower.
