So my mother has a very good green thumb. She has grown and expanded her small yard into a plant and flower paradise over the past 10 years. However, I recently visited her and saw some new plants that just completely intrigued me. So I uprooted a couple of them and brought them home to have all for myself. Unfortunately they do not seem to be doing all that well at my house. My mother cannot remember what they are or anything about them except that they are a plant and deserve the same care and attention as the rest of her paradise. I have searched the internet and cannot find them anywhere. I really dont want them to die at my house. They are beautiful. Please help!

I used to have this plant and I simply can't think of it's name right now, but I will tell you it will completely take over the area it's planted in! That's why I eventually got rid of it. I'll get back to you on the name...just have to think about it more.

I remembered the name, it's a type of variegated artemesia called Oriental Limelight.
