Description / Lysimachia Creeping Jenny

Lysimachia Creeping Jenny, a perennial ground cover, is renowned for its lush evergreen foliage. This decorative plant boasts a dense carpet of petite, slightly crinkled leaves, shaped like tiny hearts or ovals. From early to midsummer, the slender, trailing stems are adorned with solitary, cup-shaped flowers in a vibrant shade of yellow, providing a feast for pollinators.

Known scientifically as Lysimachia nummularia, and colloquially as creeping Jenny, moneywort, or herb twopence, this sprawling, trailing plant rapidly forms expansive colonies by creeping stems under ideal growing conditions. This plant flourishes when allowed to naturalize in woodland gardens, along walkways or streams, or encircling pools and ponds. Creeping Jenny also serves as a striking "spiller" in hanging baskets or planters, which effectively curbs its spread.

Resilient and easy to cultivate, creeping Jenny thrives in sunny to partially shady spots and prefers moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. However, it is adaptable and grows well in a variety of soil types, including chalky, clay, loamy, rocky, sandy, and even wet soils. This plant is not only drought tolerant and deer resistant, but it is also largely free from pests and diseases, making it a hassle-free addition to your garden.
