Bright Splash of Sunshine Yellow

If you seek to spotlight a special garden feature, such as a gate, accent tree or container garden, try Golden Alexander Loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata 'Alexander'). This gorgeous, naturalizing perennial groundcover adds a tremendous amount of interest and texture to your garden.

This is a much improved (better behaved and far less aggressive) variety, developed by British garden experts. Please don't confuse it with the weedy Purple Loosestrife, which is a different plant all together.

Variegated green and white leaves pop all season, but it's late Spring when this plant truly, literally shines. Bright yellow, star-shaped flowers glow in the garden. You can plant this in moist, well-drained soil in full sun but trust us - you'll need to wear sunglasses when it's in bloom.

Perhaps a more pleasing way to use this plant is to plant it in partial sun, where it will receive afternoon shade. You'll love how the saturated blooms have a light of their own. Plant in a loose, waving drift to pinpoint the way along a garden path. Perfect for cottage gardens!

This easy care plant helps cover the ground to reduce weeds, as it will form colonies by spreading underground not from seed.

Hummingbirds love this wonderful selection. Buy it in multiples to mass along the edge of your pond or garden bed. Place your order today for the best selection.

  • Fabulous Color
  • Easy Care
  • Cottage Garden Groundcover
