Product Information



More commonly known as Loosestrife.

An elegant upright perennial plant native to North America.

Forms mounds of whorled lance shaped burgundy or purple leaves which fade to almost green as the season passes and summer turns to autumn.

When left untouched these mounds can make sizeable patches.

In mid-summer, slender stalks rise above the foliage and carry bright yellow slightly pendant star shaped flowers which contract well with the dark foliage.

Excellent in the border, bog garden or at the edge of ponds and outstanding in containers or beneath shrubs.

A very useful cut flower the flower stalks may need to be staked but if planted at the back of the border other plants can be used for support.

Tolerant of a wet or boggy site and light shade but prefers full sun and a moist humus-rich soil.

Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

 Our plants of Lysimachia Firecracker are supplied ex. 9cm pots and can be planted out immediately but better results may be obtained by growing them on for a short time in a slightly lager container before planting in their final growing positions.

We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll. Goods will only be accepted for return after seller has been informed and given permission for their return.  Refunds will be issued when items are received back in saleable condition within 14 days from original despatch date. Buyer must pay all return charges except where an item has been despatched in error.
