Lysimachia lanceolata lance-leaved loosestrife, is a native plant endemic to North America east of the Mississippi. The purple-leaved form of this plant was an isolated population found by Mike Berkley & Terri Barnes of GroWild Inc. nursery in Tennessee.
It is bee-pollinated and mostly attractive to short-tongue bees for its floral oil.
This evergreen groundcover likes a partially sunny to full sun location.
