great plant, beautiful and compact. Have a mature plant in my sink but have started to take bits from it to plant all over the garden. will place a few in my hanging baskets this year, as soon as my cuttings have rooted. Have only just discovered what the plant is called, and joined this site. You could say this plant lead me here, so I will treasure it all the more.

A groundcover, this Lysimachia is not invasive like its relatives. It does spread, but in a mannerly way, and is easy to keep in bounds. Evergreen here, its leaves become bronzy colored in winter. Beautiful when in full bloom in the spring. Easy to propagate. Simply take long cuttings and lay them on moist ground. Cover the runners with soil, and it will root at the nodes.

Very easy to grow. I have it placed underneath a few Queen Palms. It readily takes to partial shade. I have noticed no pest problems.

I bought this plant only because of it's beautiful yellow blooms last year. It came back strong this summer spreading about 2 feet from its original plant. I do keep it moist. This is the easiest plant I have ever grown. It blooms in late spring and early summer. I did put some fertilizer on it and it's dark green foliage turned a lighter green but still looked great. I take cuttings with some roots, plant them and keep them moist. They will take off. sometimes they might wilt but come back strong. The butterflys and bees love it. I don't have a green thumb and if I can grow this plant anyone can.
