Gwist: Try Lysimachia Punctata 'Alexander'. It is hard to tell for sure from the picture. Does it have blooms along its stem. Alexander is varigated.

Biel, Switzerland(Zone 7a)

As far as i've seen,just the terminal ones.Thanks for the info,though,I will do a search on L.Punctata and see what I find.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Bringing this one back up to the top. I think it's L. congestiflora 'Outback Sunset' - check out this photo for comparison. I bought two 'Outback Sunset' plants last summer as a local nursery was closing out its perennials. Unfortunately, even with our mild winter they didn't fare well (no, that's too optimistic; they died.)

If this is the one, would you mind sharing your photo in the PDB? I added the entry after I bought my plants, hoping I'd have a photo to enter this summer, but no such luck....
