Description

Lysimachia  ly-si-MAHK-ki-uh

The genus Lysimachia includes about 150 species of herbaceous and evergreen perennials and shrubs, mainly growing in damp grasslands and woodlands or near water in subtropical regions. Leaf shapes may vary but leaves are often hairy. The 5-petaled flowers can be shaped liked stars, saucers or cups and are most often white or yellow and sometimes pink and purple. Larger species can be used in a moist border, bog garden, on the edge of a pond or for naturalizing in a wild or woodland setting. Smaller, low-growing species make good groundcovers.
