Lysimachia – Yunnanensis (Loosestrife)
Our original seed germinated very easily.
Sow at room temperature until germinated then move to a cooler spot, keep moist but not too wet.
Seed & PLants are extremely rare and very hard to find, hence slightly more pricey.
At Sonoma I have one particular border that would be a bit of a problem area had it not been for this species. There are cattle shed foundations here, and it is nearly always wet and soggy even in drought. And this is where I have my Lysimachia collection. Lysimachia are commonly called Loosestrife. They are tough and hardy and thrive endlessly in these conditions. They will also perform perfectly well in sunnier, dryer spots but may be a little smaller perhaps. I grow 4 varieties to share with you.
