Shade-Loving Ground Cover
Bright yellow flowers like glowing beacons nestle in tight, clustered circles hugging the leaf axils. Jade green foliage with subtle silver veining will tint with burgundy tones as more shade is introduced. This long-blooming groundcover prefers shade to part shade. Lysimachia alfredii Night Light provides continuous flowering from spring until a hard frost in fall. Pollinator friendly, bees will visit frequently to feast on and prolong the festive long-blooming flowers. Bees adore blue, purple, and yellow flowers.

Lysimachia General Information

Lysimachia have a wide range of growth habits. Most spread fairly quickly. Excellent ground cover for banks, woodland gardens, along paths or in moist areas near water gardens, along streams, pools or ponds where it can be left to naturalize. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Lysimachia Plant Care

Prefers shade to part shade locations. Fertilize monthly during growing season. Trim foliage to 6" after hard frost in fall.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
