Golden Jenny is a nice pick me up in a woodland setting and is remarkable over flower bulbs. Loves moist damp area but will adapt to low water area as well.

Gardening Tips from Fran
Lysimachia nummularia Aurea is a gem and that's why it's one of our Tough-Ten Plants!!! The color on this plant is unsurpassed. It is so cool in a container, and even more outstanding draping over a retaining wall. Want to BEAUTIFY a woodland area? Golden Jenny is the plant for you!
Some of you may have issues with its “happy”, roaming style. I have found in my garden that I have many plants I cannot control...Lysimachia is not one of them. I have done some experiments with it and I have found that when put in poor soil, full sun with little water, the growth is completely stalled. I have had this plant in the same hot spot going on four years and it has not moved, but always is bright and cheery.
