Creeping Jenny Lysimachia Nummularia - 1L Pot

Lysimachia Nummularia is a very vigorous perennial which is perfect for forming a creeping cover around pond margins and concealing the edges of pond liners. It has lovely cup-shaped, bright yellow flowers which bloom in abundance throughout the summer. Its shiny golden green foliage produces small, rounded leaves with wavy edges which grow out of their thin, trailing stems. Their orbicular leaves are smooth and slightly shiny. Lysimachia Nummularia is an evergreen plant, which means that the foliage of the plant persists and remains green throughout the year.

Aquatic and marginal plants should be placed in pond plant baskets filled with aquatic soil (sold separately) and topped with a thin layer of gravel to help prevent the soil from washing away. This plant is suitable for zone 2 of a pond.

Caring and Maintenance:

This is a very low maintenance plant which requires a well moisturised environment. Propagate by stem cutting or division in spring. All wandering stems can be trimmed to control the plant growth.

Help to conserve our native British flora by planting with our native plant range. These marginal pond plants grow naturally in the shallow water at the edge of the pond and are ideal for wildlife ponds or water features. As well as their attractive foliage and flowers, they provide a natural habitat for small pond creatures. The rafting varieties, such as the Water Forget-me-not, Brooklime, and Water Mint, spread out in small floating rafts, giving cover to baby fish and tadpoles. The tall emergent plants are essential for dragonflies and damsalfly nymphs to climb out of the water and transform into adults, and waterfowl like to nest among dense reeds and rushes. All plants contribute to the ecological haven of a natural pond, benefiting wildlife from tiny pond insects to mammals that like to visit for a drink.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Royal Horticultural Society has given Lysimachia Nummularia the prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM). The Award of Garden Merit, or AGM, is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
