Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'

Golden Creeping Jenny

Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' is an evergreen perennial with visually striking foliage.  Also known as Golden Creeping Jenny, it has small, round, ¾" leaves that are a brilliant yellow when grown in full sun.  Grown in shade the leaves will be lime green or chartreuse.  Covered with cup shaped yellow blooms early Summer.  Lysimachia n. 'Aurea' spreads aggressively, rooting along nodes as it creeps along the ground making for good ground cover.  Creeping Jenny needs adequate moisture, especially in the Summer and it thrives in moist to wet areas where other ground covers can not.  It is a good choice around ponds, streams and waterfalls and cascades nicely over rocks and walls.  Mature height 2"-6"
