CREEPING JENNY

Creeping Jenny is hanging out of pots all over the states.  Her lime green or gold foliage sets off every color of foliage or flower and makes the perfect 'spiller' on the side of a container.  If she spills too far, watch out.

Jenny is a wanderer.  She takes off the minute her roots hit soil.  This can be a perfectly good attribute for covering and holding a steep bank.  It is a bane of gardeners who do not want their garden covered with Jenny.

Her versatility stretches from USDA Zones 3-8.  She can thrive in wet areas and normal soil.  Sun, part-sun, or shade suits her just fine.  Fussy is a word that does not belong next to Creeping Jenny.

She can be evergreen in warmer states and can overrun a flowerbed in the course of one growing season.  Like a mooching relative, once she settles in and makes herself at home you will be hard-pressed to get rid of her.

Creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea') is a curse or cure, depending on your intention and application in your garden.  You've been warned!
