Grow alongside cultivar Lysimachia nummularia 'Goldilocks' for a great contrast. Great in light shade as well as sun. Great for containers as well.

Great foliage for containers, but be careful when using it as a groundcover in its hardiness zones. You may have to spend back-breaking hour after hour ripping it out of your garden if you don't keep it in check.

I used this in a container with Black Knight Canna. I bought one plant and it filled the 18" X 18" pot and flowed nicely. The color was more bronze at the beginning of the growing season. There were a few small yellow blooms in August. I will use this one again.
