Lysimachia-Gooseneck, Loosestrife

Propagating Lysimachia or Gooseneck or Loosestrife can be done either in the spring or fall by digging up the rhizomes which can become a problem if not shown their boundaries especially if they like where they are planted which could be clay or any well draining soil, but is not tolerant of humidity, but will take wet feet. The plant will reach a height of 24"-36" and flowers in June -July
and can be either white or pink or rose-violet, but one thing you can count on is that the blooms will all face the same direction so it will look like a gaggle of geese flying. It will take full sun or partial shade. An extra benefit of this perennial is its fall color, yellow to red leaves. Lysimachia attracts butterflies and is deer resistant.
