Golden Creeping Jenny Overview
Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' is a rampant, perennial that forms a dense mat of small, evergreen, rounded/ovate, golden-yellow leaves, on creeping stems. It produces bright yellow, cup-shaped flowers in summer. A popular ground cover plant - and commonly known as Golden Creeping Jenny, amongst other names - it has earned an 'RHS Garden of Merit Award' and is part of the Royal Horticultural Society “Plants for Pollinators” initiative to showcase plants which support pollinator populations by providing ample amounts of nectar and/or pollen. So a great choice for encouraging pollinating insect wildlife into your garden! Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' is tolerant of most garden conditions, including dry or moist soils, full sun or partial shade and exposed or sheltered sites. It is particularly useful for edging around ponds and bog gardens, in wildlife areas, and it is suitable for hanging baskets and container planting. But it is a vigorous spreader, so make it doesn't invade areas where it's not wanted!
