Lysimachia clethroides (Lysimachia clethroides)

This does spread - luckily there's space for it!

Love this, I bought it off ebay a few years ago, still actually wondering if it is what its supposed to be , does look like this but the flowers don't curve over like they're supposed too, do the stems on yours go red in autumn?

I don't think so, Kathy. If the flowers on yours don't curve over, it is certainly not L. clethroides. I wonder what you actually got??? Intriguing...Hmmm...

I could dig up a root for you in the autumn and pot it up if you'd like a piece??? Not possible at the moment, of course.

my piece is doing well, well it was until a heavily apple laden branch snapped onto it and several other plants. :o( Stems are bruised and I darent try to straighten it in case they snap off at the base. not the best ground cover plant ;-)

Oh no! If it doesn't make it, tell me and I'll dig some more up for you.

thankyou so much, but I suspect the actual root bit will be quite happy. its just the lovely top growth :o(

Ooo thanks Barbara that'd be great, don't know what variety mine is, had a look yesterday just to make sure and noticed the stems are a reddy colour now, if I get round to it I'll take a picture later.

OK. It wasn't too difficult to do at all - Sbg's root seems to have done well! I'd like to see yours.

will have to investigate where mine is, looks like the badger has got to this one too :-((

Oh no.......if you need a root, let me know. :-/

Hi Barbara, sorry its taken so long but just put a picture of my lysimachia on ask a question, see what you think.

Done, Kathy. I'm pretty sure that it's the same as the plant I got yesterday - that was a strange co-incidence, wasn't it! 'Lysimachia fortunei'.

Thanks Barbara, very strange, yes agree after googling it does look the same :-)

Good! Sorted. :-)))
