Genus:  Lysimachia
Golden creeping Jenny is a  low-growing, rampant, evergreen groundcover with rounded, golden yellow leaves. In summer, it produces many cup-shaped, bright yellow flowers.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  This cultivar can withstand damper soils than many other types of ground covers and can tolerate limited foot traffic.
Care:  Grow in a moist, but well-drained soil, rich in organic matter. Soil should not dry out in summer. Full sun or partial shade, but color is best in full sun.
Propagation:  Sow seed in containers outdoors in spring. Divide in spring or autumn.
Problems:  Rust and leaf spot are possible, but generally no serious disease or insect problems. Can be invasive.
