Description

Just a few of these plants in 8cm pots

This plant has dark burgundy purple spikes which are produced continuously from November to March. The flowers are good for cutting, and look stunning in a large bunch.

The plant has an upright spreading habit of growth, with grey-green pointed leaves which have an attractive underside of silver. Its leaves are fine textured and this adds to the appeal of the plant. They are borne on deep red stems which are very interesting in winter.

It likes moist soil in sun or partial shade. If you want to plant it in drier soil, then you should ensure that it has some shade, has plenty of compost added to its soil and is well mulched.

Apply a mulch of manure to the base of plant in autumn. Divide plants, if required in spring and give a top dressing of blood and bone.

Unlike other lysimachia, this plant does not spread at the root, or become invasive
