In forum: Identify a plant

A very helpful suggestion from our social media is "Croton? A tropical plant.. not sure"

We have Croton here in Shoot. Hope that is useful?

We've since had more suggestions:
Red Amaranth (related to Love lies bleeding) and Lysimachia
If it’s a shrub it could very well be Loropetalum chinense

This is a good challenge for our members!

Thank you Tracey! Much appreciated.

Hi Pat, you can read more about Lysimachia punctata here in Shoot and add to your 'plants I have' list and map where they are on your garden plan.

All the best, Nicola

Yes, its definitely Lysimachia - possibly 'Firecracker' and I can vouch for it being a potential 'thug' in the garden, if you let it!

Re: Is this worth keeping?

Message from Nicola Carmichael

In forum: Identify a plant

It’s Lysimachia/ loosestrife. In my garden it’s rampant, so I weed out a lot. I’ve kept a couple of clumps because it’s such a good vibrant yellow.

Hi Elaine
The flowers definitely not yellow but I think you are right and it is some sort of ligularia- I feel research coming on ! There are some wonderful plants in this garden - two other ligularia S, tetrapanex, lysimachia firecracker, tree fern and many ferns of different types- a real voyage of discovery

I looked up mind your own business and found it is not lysimachia - but Helxine soleirolii which is described as invasive. I would avoid it!

It looks a bit like what people call 'mind-your-own-business' to me - which might be some kind of lysimachia.

In forum: Veronicastrum virginicum 'Album'

Hi Pat, several suggestions on our social media that this is in fact Lysimachia clethroides (Gooseneck loosestrife). I hope that helps!

Re: Any ideas .

Message from Maurice Wilkins

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi Sarah! It's Lysimachia, yellow loosestrife. I think it's an introduced perennial, L. punctata, rather than the less common native, L. vulgaris, which is less dense with fewer flowers. A wildflower book will show you the difference.

Looks like Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' - golden creeping Jenny. I bought some last year for my mother's pots!

Hi I think your plant may be a Lysimachia just before flower colours show. Hope this helps.

Re: Best plant to go in front of rudbeckia

Message from Gill Greetham

In forum: General

Try some Lysimachia Firecracker, they also grow tall ( 2' with yellow flowers and have lovely brown/red leaves so make a great contract or you could try Saxifrage peter pan at ground level yellow and pink flowers or primula vialli which are amazing, drumstick primulas or oridnary primulas, hope all this helps ;-)

Re: Plant identification

Hello again,
I just want to make sure that you know that it isn't like "Willow herb". It is a really lovely herbaceous plant that can be a thug like a lot of herbaceous plants if you don't keep the clump restricted. It is lovely in herbaceous borders, mixed borders or bog gardens. You can go on RHS Plant Selector site, just google Lysimachia punctata RHS and you will see that they have selected the variegated form.
http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=5925
Best wishes, only rid of it if you can't enjoy it somewhere in your garden. Every plant has a place.
Samantha Jane, MIHORT, KEWDIP

Hi there,
It looks like Lysimachia punctata "Yellow Loosestrife" to me. A great herbaceous plant for spires of vibrant eggy yellow colour, I have it in my home garden, but it can be a bit of a thug if you let it take over your borders.
Best wishes,
Samantha Jane
