Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'
Common Name: CREEPING JENNY, MONEYWORT and CREEPING CHARLIE.
Zones 3 to 9.
Part to full shade.
Low-growing, creeping ground cover forms a dense leafy mat 2 to 4 inches tall.
Rounded, slightly ruffled, leaves will be yellow in full sun to lime green in shade. Bountiful, cup-shaped, bright yellow flowers emerge in early summer to fall.
Rooting where leaf nodes come in contact with the soil, 'Aurea' is easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil. Intolerant of dry soils, it can sometimes be invasive, but will tolerate moderate foot traffic.
Good plant for shady places, under trees or on a creek bank. Use for covering banks, as a border, around water gardens, between stepping stones, or in rustic containers, old stumps, and hanging baskets or walls for cascading effect.
Ten (10) plants in 4.5 inch containers per flat (or tray).

First time purchasing plants online and was worried but these arrived quickly and in good shape. Gave them a couple of days before planting and so far they look great. I was concerned because the lack of root system on most of them but seem okay. Put these around the edge of my new mini fish pond so they could grow over the edge and they are doing just that. Can't wait to see how they fill out and might buy some more.
