This is a genus that includes the plants known as yellow loosestrife (but not purple loosestrife) and creeping jenny, so a loving of cool, damp conditions is indicated. Yellow is the most usual colour, but paler cream and pink are also possible.
|Lysimachia ciliata 'Firecracker' has dark foliage, somewhere between plum and chocolate (there's a combination I never thought I would used, which provides a contrasting background to the clusters of bright yellow flowers. I personally don't like the colour combination, but people with less conservative tastes can rave about it.|
|Lysimachia minoricensis has attractive dark green, marbled foliage. Originally from Minorca, but now sadly extinct in the wild.|
