Planted this from TINY plugs in the Spring, and it filled in nicely. Brilliant lime color, use it as a living mulch around my rose and other perennials. Also noted some browning during our brutal summer, but with the cooler temps and extended rain, it is absolutely beautiful and perky! I understand it can be invasive, but am going to try it in the shaded, heavy clay back yard where I cannot get grass to grow to save my life.
I cannot describe my delight when I first discovered creeping Jenny, Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'. Although it is often described as "golden" in color, it first struck me as a rare lime...tomatoes/ tomaatoes. Both speak to the yellowish tone in its green.
In my perennial beds it is a brilliant Spring awakening as it bursts forth heralding the season and blanketing winter's mulch. But it is vigorous if not aggressive which I have grown to appreciate even as it creeps into the lawn out of the planting beds. This will be its third year and last year I noticed a withering or browning sometime after mid summer which was a little disappointing. I know it isn't evergreen so perhaps this is normal receding before summer is fully done. I am anxious to see if this repeats this year. I have seen only one reference to mid-summer receding in my online research. I would be interested in the experience of others.
