Lysimachia punctata ‘Alexander’


Yellow Loosestrife

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.340.180


Not to be confused with the noxious weed Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria). An outstanding selection from England, this will spread moderately to form a small patch. More refined than the typical green-leaved form, the variegated leaves remain attractive all season long, with bold margins of creamy-white, tinged with pink in the spring. Spikes of starry yellow flowers contrast beautifully with the foliage. An excellent, long-lasting cut flower. Good at the waterside, the border, or in containers. USPP#10598, CPBR#0858: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
