Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'
- One of our most popular trailing plants for combination pots
- Bright golden, rounded leaves strung together on long, creeping stems
- Does very well in damp areas, such as tucked into rocks around a pond
Golden Creeping Jenny is an easy, fast growing ground cover that looks great in containers as well. The foliage is yellow-green and slightly rounded with an abundance of bright yellow, cup-shaped flowers appearing in the early summer. The color will be brighter yellow with more sun, and more lime-green in shadier sites. Excellent groundcover in wet areas, as it will root at the joints where it touches the ground. Tolerates light foot traffic. Add a splash of zing to your flower beds or hanging baskets!
Uses: Bogs, Containers, Groundcover, Hanging Baskets, Landscapes, Rain Gardens, Woodland Gardens

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow Lysimachia in full sun or partial shade. It prefers reliably moist soil, especially through the heat of summer; amend with compost before planting. In hot climates, provide some afternoon shade.
