Lysimachia hybrida

This is a Pennsylvanian native loosestrife, which is listed as critically imperiled by NatureServe. It’s certainly an under used native plant. (This is not related to the invasive Purple Loosestrife.) River Loosestrifes typically bloom from July to August and grow up to 1-3 feet. They thrive in Full to Part Sun and wet to moist soils. It would be perfect for the center of a rain garden! In the wild, they’re often found on stream banks, marshes and wet prairies. Their yellow flowers attract native short-tongued Melittid bees!
