Lysimachia congestiflora is a useful plant in a variety of settings. Its 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.

Grow Lysimachia congestiflora in moit but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade.
