It has beautiful yellow flowers along the stem, under the leaf. It's a perennial and very hearty.

Loosestrife - Lysimachia, possibly L. vulgaris or L. punctata http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&lr=&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=lysimachia punctata

SoCal - this is your plant! Glad you like it. It was difficult to get leaves with roots bc they all come from a center (at least my plant does).

I was awake at 4 a.m. and couldn't sleep so I got up and came here - finally went back to sleep.

It looks like what I have labelled as L. punctata.

Yes, i think it is L. punctata. It spreads!!!!Very pretty when in bloom. i tried to use it in making a flower arrangement. Doesn't work, after it is picked the blooms fall off. Donna

A bit invasive but a nice strong plant. The purple leaved forms are excellent color contrast at that height , about 3 foot. I raise the purple ones at the base of a garden wall so I can just mow along infront of them to keep them in bounds.

Since this appears to be Loosestrife can someone tell me how to control the growth pattern. Each yr (3) it growns from the center and has beautiful yellow flowers. It's almost like the flowers weigh down the limbs and it spreads or lays back, leaving the center empty. I could almost sit a flower pot in the center - which would be really beautiful. But this mean it needs trimmed or divided? If so, when? I would love to share this plant with anyone who wants to try it - just for postage.
Thanks for any help you can give.
