Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
LYSIMACHIA nummularia 'Aurea'
Creeping Jenny, Golden Creeping Jenny
Creeping Jenny is a vigorous and sometimes invasive carpeting perennial native to Europe and naturalized in the eastern United States. The cultivar 'Aurea' forms attractive mats of small, rounded, yellow or chartreuse leaves, which are studded with fragrant bright yellow flowers in late spring and early summer.
Golden creeping Jenny grows most vigorously (and invasively) in moist, well drained soil and partial shade. The leaves scorch in full sun. It will spill over a rock wall or hanging basket nicely, and makes a good ground cover.
