Alexander Garden Loosestrife

LYSIMACHIA punctata Alexander PP10598 (Alexander Garden Loosestrife) Not to be confused with the noxious weed Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria). An outstanding selection from England, this will spread moderately to form a small patch. More refined than the typical green-leaved form, the variegated leaves remain attractive all season long, with bold margins of creamy-white, tinged with pink in the spring. Spikes of starry yellow flowers contrast beautifully with the foliage. An excellent, long-lasting cut flower. Good at the waterside, the border, or in containers.

A Northern Sunset perennial, it prefers rich, moist to well-drained soil in part sun to full sun.
