Buy Lysimachia ciliata 'Firecracker' loosestrife: Non invasive, with lemon-yellow flowers

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
  • Flowering period: July and August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Pointed leaves, which if grown in a sunny spot, have a deep purple flush, contrast well with the sulphur yellow flowers that start appearing from midsummer. This perennial will thrive in a moist herbaceous border or bog garden, where it will quickly form a colony. It will happily grow in full sun or partial shade, but the purple flush on the foliage will usually become less obvious (and the leaves greener) as the summer progresses.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of organic matter when planting. 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.

the leaf colour is strong, the yellow flowers contrast well, very reliable plant. i've grown it in a large pot on the patio, watered it well and trained it into a 1 metre tall tower.

Lovely leaf colour

This is a great perennial, comes up reliably year after year with its lovely purple leaves. Great interplanted with Aster divaricatus. Curb its spread and hold the boundaries with a line of landscape fabric recessed in the ground. Although moisture loving, they seem to survive in the garden without any extra water. Lovely at this time of year near the Verbena bonariensis.
