Morning Jane, looks lovely, but does it not spread? I had to take it out as it doubled in a year

Morning Joan, yes, it is very rampant and it's hard work keeping it compact but the pollinators love it so I persevere with it 💛 @joanboston

Morning everyone 🙋‍♀️ These are the last few flowers on the loosestrife, this part of the garden is going to sleep now, sad but inevitable. Still lots of colour elsewhere though 💛 #large-yellow-loosestrife #lysimachia-punctata

I do like loosestrife. Unfortunately I didn’t water mine as much as usual this year so they didn’t flower as much as usual. Note to self next year...must do better! 💦 💦

These have done better this year since I moved them. They're in a more shaded area so the soil stays moist for longer Angela 🌻 @italydiva

Morning Jane, my loosetrife have all finished too. I planted some Winter Pansies at the weekend to fill a space in the new bed in the front garden. Won't be long til we're all planting bulbs again 😃

I’ve done some winter pansies in hanging baskets and a couple of containers so far. I need some cyclamen now. I’m trying (and failing) not to think about bulb planting 😱😂🤣 @anges

Well done, I've bought a few alliums and only 1 packet of tulips so far! I've been drooling over the bulb catalogues! 😂 We're away next week so I'll wait til we're back before I order any. My pots are still going strong really anyway - so I need to be patient! 🙄😄

I'm not sure whether I'm going to like this or not, it was given to me by a friend. I'll let it come fully into flower and then decide 💛 #lysimachia-punctata #large-yellow-loosestrife

It's a really lovely splash of yellow once it's in full bloom, it fills in the gaps nicely too and very dependable year in year out #loosestrife

Thanks for putting up this photo. You’ve just helped me to identify mine! When I first had it I wasn’t sure either, but wait until it’s in full bloom. I’m with @belindah on this one...beautiful 💛

Thanks Belinda and Angela, I’m definitely leaving it for the season but I think it may be in the wrong place 💛 @belindah @italydiva

It will definitely need dividing at some point as it can take over if you’re not careful. I’ve got mine in a walled border to contain it’s enthusiasm 😊

Yes so I understand, it's grown a lot since last year already!!! I'll certainly keep an eye on it. Thanks Angela 🙏😊 @italydiva
