Lysimachia nummularia

To collect for free from Good Earth Gardens

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

I will need to remove some of these plants soon as they are taking over my pond area, but they have a lovely yellow flower and cope well in the shady area where they are now. The foliage is a good colour too.

Let me know the day you wish to collect and I can leave a carrier bag outside my front door.
