Lysimachia ciliata

Fringed loosestrife is a colorful, native wildflower that is a bit reminiscent of a daffodil. The butter-yellow flowers bloom on straight green stalks that grow to 1-2 feet tall. Unlike daffodils, these plants bloom later in the summer, and will provide pretty yellow color into the early fall.

 

Choose a spot that receives full sun to part shade, and moist soil. Lysimachia ciliata works well as a groundcover in shade gardens, providing a welcome pop of color.

 

It serves as an important food source for native bees. Even though they share a similar common name, these are not the same plant as the invasive Purple Loosestrife.

 

Fun Fact: L. ciliata gets its name from the tiny hairs that cover the stem.

 

Source: grown from seed originally from Minnesota. Prairie Moon Nursery.
