Lysimachia Creeping Jenny

Item #29672


Evergreen | Cold hardy to Zone 3

Lysimachia Creeping Jenny is an evergreen flowering perennial ground cover, typically grown for its stunning foliage. This elegant, ornamental plant forms a dense leafy mat of small ovate to heart-shaped foliage that's slightly ruffled. In early to midsummer, single, cup-shaped bright yellow flowers bloom along the thin, trailing stems, supporting pollinators.

A Lysimachia nummularia, commonly called creeping Jenny, moneywort, or herb twopence, creeping Jenny has a trailing habit and spreads by creeping stems to form large colonies, in optimum growing conditions. Creeping Jenny is best planted in areas of the garden or landscape where it can naturalize, such as in woodland gardens, along paths or streams, or around pools and ponds. This trailing plant also makes a stunning "spiller" in hanging baskets or containers, which help contain its spread.

Cold hardy and easy to grow, creeping Jenny grows best in a partially sunny location with moist, humus-rich, well-draining soil but adapts to a wide range of soils, including chalky, clay, loamy, rocky, sandy, and wet soils. The plant is drought tolerant, deer resistant, and generally pest and disease free.
