Lysimachia nummelaria 'Goldi'

POS ID: 240463
A fast-growing and vigorous groundcover, Creeping Jenny (also known as moneywort) brings mats of low-lying chartreuse color to gardens and containers. Native to Europe but naturalized to Eastern North America, its rounded golden leaves form on trailing stems with small, bright yellow flowers appearing in the summer. A perennial in milder climates, be careful not to plant in areas where spreading would be unwanted—a single plant can grow 2 feet wide and root as it goes. Perfect for softening hard edges, following a pathway or spilling from containers.

Plant Care Tips

Planting Instructions
Creeping Jenny is a hardy plant that will thrive in full sun or shade. Choose a site that drains well. Space these plants 2 feet apart, as they grow rapidly to fill in empty areas. Creeping Jenny requires regular water and does well with a little fertilizer when first planted. Apply mulch or organic compost around plants to help with moisture retention.
General Care Description
Easily grown in moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plants prefer some part afternoon shade, but flowers and foliage show best yellow color in full sun. Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary. If the foliage begins to look tired, feel free to cut back. Once established, Creeping Jenny grows and recovers quickly.
