Lysimachia congestiflora

 
Lysimachia congestiflora

Common name creeping Jenny
Family primulaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z7-9)
Flowers yellow (summer)
Size 6-8"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil, not too dry

Our plant has leaves that are irregularly variegated in a lime green/forest green color scheme, which nicely brighten up a corner of our backyard that gets sun only part of the day. Over time, it may form a mat as the plant spreads by creeping stems, which would be quite welcome in our garden. Native to China and southeast Asia, not considered invasive. We also purchased a few plants, just identified as 'chocolate creeping Jenny', that are quite different in appearance, both color and habit.
