Lysimachia Golden (more commonly known as Creeping Jenny) is a vining plant known for its yellow leaves and cascading growth habit. Known more for its foliage than its flower, in warmer climates Creeping Jenny is evergreen and will produce small yellow flowers in the springtime. Lysimachia is an excellent groundcover, a cascading plant in a combination planter, or a standalone hanging basket. It is also an aquatic plant and can be grown submerged for aquarium use.


Growing Tips

Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage of fertilizer until well rooted.

For best results with Creeping Jenny, we recommend using a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.8 - 6.2.

Pinching

Lysimachia is a natural vine and a rather fast grower. We recommend that you pinch them 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container. They may require a second pinch to shape the plant for your final needs.

Spacing

For hanging baskets, an average pot will need to be spaced at 2' centers. If you are growing them for landscape use in an 1801, be prepared to control growth through proper pinching.

Height Control

Creeping Jenny are not responsive to plant growth regulators. Use proper pinching to control growth.

Pests

Whiteflies, aphids, and spider mites are the biggest pest problems with Lysimachia.

Disease

Lysimachia Golden is not prone to many diseases, but don't oversaturate the soil. If the plant sits in moist soil for an extended amount of time, you could end up with root rot or botrytis. Botrytis grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis and root rot are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label's instructions.

Planting Lysimachia Golden Liners

  1. We recommend planting 4-5 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4 inch pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

Unrooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
