Lysimachia congestiflora is a useful plant all around the garden. The prostrate, creeping stems make excellent ground cover around pond margins and, being evergreen, are useful for concealing the edges of pond liners. They also infiltrate pondside plants or those growing in a damp border, filling gaps and providing winter interest after other perennials have died down.

I originally planted this in a mixed hanging basket where it stayed for a couple of years, before I found it growing in the heavy clay beneath the hanging basket. Have to admit it looks lovely. Have also got several small pots inside a large tub which are completely submerged in rainwater complete with tadpoles and it's still going strong. Will be planting them once tadpoles have grown. A beautiful plant I fully recommend.
