Golden Moneywort Lysimachia

Lysimachia Moneywort or “creeping Jenny”, is a low growing, creeping groundcover that forms a leafy carpet no more than four inches tall. It is a fast spreader as it roots where the leaf nodes touch the ground. It thrives in damp soils and will often choke out weeds and other groundcovers. This cultivar features rounded slightly ruffled light green leaves. In early summer it will bloom bright yellow, cup-shaped flowers. Lysimachia Golden Moneywort is great for a low maintenance groundcover along streams or ponds and is beautiful when they spill over stone walls or fences.

Mazus Reptans Purple

Mazus Reptans is a mat forming, perennial groundcover. It produces rosettes of lance shaped, toothed leaves. From spring to mid-summer, it bears 2-5 flowered racemes of snapdragon-like, purple-blue flowers, with lower lips spotted with yellow and red. This groundcover spreads quickly but not aggressively through rooting stems. Mazus Reptans is great to use between stepping stones, as it does well with foot traffic, or to cover a large area of bare soil.
