Lysimachia ephemerum (Large Plant)

Loosestrife

Hardy Perennial

Ghostly flower spikes packed with starry white blooms rise above clumps of silvery green foliage. Despite its qualities, this particular species of loosestrife is seldom seen in UK gardens. This elegant perennial enjoys a boggy position at the edge of ponds and streams, or in moist borders and bog gardens. Awarded an RHS AGM for its garden performance, Lysimachia ephemerum makes a pleasing cut flower and is always busy with butterflies. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Grow Lysimachia in a fertile, moist soil that does not dry out in summer. Loosestrife will happily grow in clay soils, at the margins of a pond or in a bog garden.
Water Lysimachia plants regularly until fully established. In autumn, cut back old faded stems to ground level. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Lysimachia in spring to maintain their vigour. Apply a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost to the base of the plants each spring.
