Lysimachia nummelaria 'Goldi'

Creeping Jenny

Lysimachia nummelaria 'Goldi', also known most commonly as Creeping Jenny, is a vigorous groundcover that can be used in the garden or container and is known for its dense mat of bright chartreuse-colored, circular-leaved foliage. Best yellow color when planted in full sun. Profuse bright yellow flowers appear in early summer. Lovely spilling over a rock wall or hanging basket.

Creeping Jenny Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Plants prefer some part afternoon shade in the St. Louis area, but flowers and foliage show best yellow color in full sun. Plants spread by rhizomes and form large colonies. Stems may root where leaf nodes touch the ground. Plants tend to be less invasive if grown in lean, somewhat dry soils, however best performance is in moist fertile soils.
