Lysimachia - Loosestrife
Lysimachia or Loosestrife is a low growing, herbaceous plant that spreads by creeping stems to about 12” wide or so, but is not considered invasive. It forms a nice dense groundcover accented by beautiful, cheery yellow cup-shaped flowers from spring to mid-summer. It is native to areas in China, India, Thailand and Vietnam and is winter hardy to zone 7. The foliage is semi-evergreen to evergreen in warm winter areas and is considered an annual in colder zones. Use Lysimachia as a groundcover, as an edging plant or in hanging baskets and containers where it will spill and trail in a striking display.
