Lysimachia 'Persian Chocolate
You may have seen creeping jenny which is a wonderful colourful ground cover plant but have you seen this chocolate leaved form?
Beginning as a clump it rambles across the ground offering weed supressing interest with its dark coloured leaves, these made to look even more striking when the plant is in bloom with its bright yellow flowers.
This plant has a low nutrient requirement meaning it is a great companion plant to perennials and shrubs, offering groundcover and therefore reducing water loss, soil erosion, weeding and the need for top dressing without drawing nutrient from its neighbours.
It also looks good in pots and baskets.
Hardy and low maintenance. Max Height 10cm, spread 50cm in 1-2 years.
Comes in a 9cm pot
Plants will be shipped in the pot size selected. Upon arrival unpack and water place in a cool semi shady spot to allow to recover from shipping. After a day or two these can be planted out. Dig a hole the size of the pot and fill with water. Sprinkle a handful of slow release food granules into the hole (this is optional but will give the plants an added boost and can be purchased with your order) soak the plant pot and remove the whole plant and its soil in one place directly into the hole back firm and firm in well to ensure their are no air pockets. Water in. Should the weather be hot during planting further watering may be necessary. Otherwise simply enjoy and trim back old flowers head once they have gone over.
