Lysimachia punctata

Common name yellow loosestrife; circle flower
Family myrsinaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-8)
Flowers yellow (June)
Size 2-3'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Upright growth pattern with whorled leaves, provides a good solid mass of green throughout the season. The flowers in June add a splash of yellow. We've had this in our garden for a good number of years, in average garden soil, and it has not shown any inclination to take over by roots or seeds.

Lysimachia punctata

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
