Buy Lysimachia atropurpurea 'Beaujolais' loosestrife: Long-lasting, burgundy flowers and silver leaves

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy


    Striking, burgundy flower spikes on long slender stems flower continuously from May to September. The attractive, crinkled, rosettes of silver-green foliage are an excellent foil for the flowers, which are also highly attractive to butterflies. A versatile plant that can be shortlived, spreads slowly and performs best in a moist border in sun or partial shade, or it can be grown in a pot on the patio. It makes an excellent cut flower, too.


  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of organic matter when planting. Do not allow to dry out. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plants in spring and lift and divide congested colonies.

Notes on Lysimachia atropurpurea 'Beaujolais'

"The rosette of crinkled grey-green leaves marked with pale veins produces a spike of burgundy-red flowers on this biennial loosestrife"

Attractive plant

I tried this plant from seed some years ago but they were rather lax. The Lysimachia I bought from Crocus were sturdy and grew well this summer. The stems of flowers have a graceful arching habit. I look forward to their regrowth next year.

Super plant for bee garden

5

These plants were a big hit with the bees in my garden and were super hardy, flowering all through the very hot summer of 2018. They are very beautiful, about a metre tall waving gently in the breeze - add a lovely dimension to the garden. Highly recommend these, they will be a staple in my garden : )

A strange plant with an almost alien like form. Striking and different, long flowering. I had to stake young plants last summer, but it was extremely hot.

Lysimachia Beaujolais

I have a large garden and need to fill a lot of areas that get weedy. I look for small low growing plants to set off larger perennials and shrubs.

Lysimachia atropurpurea Beaujolais "Very nice plants"

5

Very nice plants in very good and spacious packaging. Always pleased with the quality of the plants from Crocus, I have had plants from other suppliers that are tightly packaged and very squashed and rarely survive so to have plants of this quality is heaven.

What is this plants estimated lifespan assuming optimal conditions please? I have had many losses of this plant over the past few years, moat recently in an area of fairly damp greensand soil heavily conditioned with compost (at least 4 inches worth). Should it be treated as an annual? All my plants grow well in the first year but don't make it though to the second i.e. don't survive the winter. Should i treat it as an annual?

Hello, These are not particularly long lived and many people treat them as biennials, replacing them every 2 to 3 years.
