Lysimachia Golden Creeping Jenny-Moneywort


Lysimachia nummularia Aurea

Golden Creeping Jenny
Golden Creeping Jenny is must have plant for every gardener! This STEPABLE Creeping Pereenial crosses over to our All -Terrain Ground Cover line as it is an amazing perennial for slopes, containers, and as a lawn substitute. However, if you palnt it between stepping stones, it can over-run them in a hurry. It has exceptional gold foliage and illuminates even the most dreariest of spots. Lysimachia nummularia Aurea is simply specatacular when allowed to spill over retaining walls or container edges. 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. Dependable groundcovering perennial for areas where other plants fail.

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.
