Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' is a low-growing, evergreen perennial that is native to Europe. It is a member of the primrose family (Primulaceae). Golden creeping Jenny is a vigorous grower and can quickly form a dense mat of visually striking foliage. ¾" leaves are a brilliant yellow when grown in full sun, or lime green to chartreuse in the shade. The flowers are small, cup shaped and bright yellow, appearing in early summer.
Golden Creeping Jenny is a very versatile plant that can be used in a variety of settings. Easy to care for, 'Aurea' spreads aggressively, rooting along nodes as it creeps along the ground. Tolerating foot traffic adds to its popularity as a groundcover. It can also be grown in containers, hanging baskets, or rock gardens.
Golden Creeping Jenny prefers full sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soil. Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' thrives in moist to wet areas where other ground covers cannot. The plant is not particularly drought-tolerant, so it is important to water it regularly during the summer months. It is a good choice around ponds, streams and waterfalls as it cascades over rocks and walls.
