Lysimachia punctata “Alexander’s form”


This variegated form brings a touch of glamour to a plant often unfairly dismissed, when seen in rubbishy situations where it thrives. New leaves have broad cream margins, suffused with pink, retaining cream and green in mature leaves. Has spires of yellow flowers in leaf axils in mid to late summer. If kept pruned retains fresh variegated effect.

A really good bright coloured filler for the border. In early spring, pink-tinted, cream and green variegated foliage emerges to form dazzling clumps that then sensationally adorn themselves in masses of bright golden blooms all the way through from June to September providing an instant shot of sunshine on even the dullest of days, loved by bees and butterflies and generally pest resistant, this easy to grow herbaceous perennial will thrive in moist soil in full sun or partial shade reaching around 90cms (3ft tall) and wide.
