Lysimachia japonica var. minutissima

Miniature Creeping Jenny

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.340.120

A tiny-leaved selection of Creeping Jenny, this grows almost flat to the ground, slowly spreading to form a dense carpet studded with starry yellow flowers in early summer. This prefers an evenly moist soil and dislikes drying out. Protect from hot afternoon sun. Perfect as a pathway edging, in the rock garden or beside a water feature. Semi-evergreen or evergreen in mild winter regions. Easily divided by ripping the plant apart into small pieces in early fall or spring. The growth rate is much more restrained than the larger-leaved types of Creeping Jenny.
