Plant this fast-growing groundcover for bordering a garden path or “spiller” in container planting.
A fast growing and vigorous groundcover, Creeping Jenny (also known as moneywort) brings mats of low-lying chartreuse color to gardens and containers. Native to Europe but naturalized to Eastern North America, its rounded golden leaves form on trailing stems with small, bright yellow flowers appearing in the summer. A perennial in milder climates, be careful not to plant in areas where spreading would be unwanted—a single plant can grow 2-feet wide and root as it goes. Perfect for softening hard edges, following a pathway or spilling from containers.
HOW TO PLANT Less is more should be Lysimachia nummularia’s motto. Due to its rapidly spreading nature, plant 12 to 18 inches apart. They will grow quickly to form a dense carpet anywhere from 4 to 8 inches tall. Planting in early spring is best to ensure its pretty summer blossoms, although Creeping Jenny will take root whenever the weather is mild and regular water is available.
GROWING CONDITIONS Creeping Jenny needs consistently moist, but not soggy, soil. Often happiest in damp, low-lying areas of the garden where there’s room for them to spread and not cause trouble for neighboring plants. Don’t allow Creeping Jenny flowers to dry out between watering and plant in sun to partial shade. In hot climates, protect from direct afternoon sun—the heat may blanch the leaves and cause pronounced wilting.
These are grown in 3” pots and they ship semi-bare root. Leaves may be a little wilted after shipping, but just get them planted and watered and they will perk right back up.
For the plants safety, I will ship on Monday & Tuesday’s only to present weekend delays.
Please note that my turn around time is 14 days. I usually ship sooner but it could be up to 14 days, depending on the time of year & our order volume. If you have a specific date that you need to receive your item, please let us know & we will do our absolute best to accommodate you. Shipping dates are NOT guaranteed. We work very hard to get your order out as soon as possible, but we are not just pulling your item off of a shelf, each item is personalized and therefore takes time. It can take 1-2 weeks for your order to ship. Also, at Christmas & other high volume times, it may be longer.
I am not responsible for your items once I have shipped them. Most items (besides vinyl decals) will have tracking information. Buts sometimes (even with tracking) packages get lost. I can add insurance to your order for an additional fee. It will be whatever USPS charges for this. Once I've shipped your item, I cannot be responsible for the delivery of the item. I have no control over USPS and their delivery time. If a package is lost and you did not purchase insurance, I cannot be responsible for replacing this item.
I am not responsible for wrong addresses or returned mail to me. If I need to resend your order due to an incorrect address or mistake on your part, then you will need to pay for shipping again so that I can ship it. I've been lenient about this before and have realized that I am reshipping way too many orders. It is NOT my responsibility, sorry.
