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. Deer resistant, prefers a moist soil, not for gulf states. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Lysimachia Plant Care

Cut back plant by 1/3 when first blooms begin to fade. Divide periodically in spring or fall to maintain control. This quick spreader will need a root barrier to maintain boundaries in the formal border. Benefits from water during dry spells.
