I received some Lysimachia plants from you. However, the information is incomplete. I understand that this plant is aggresive and likes wet soil. How tall does it get? Which type of Lysimachia is it?

Lysimachia is commonly called Creeping Jennie and will spread and creep, so is best planted where you can keep it contained. Many gardeners use it in hanging pots or plant in in confined beds where they can keep an eye on it. The plant is low-growing with stems that can trail for about two-feet, making it an excellent groundcover. The flowers will be a golden to bright yellow. Lysimachia will need regular watering and will adapt to both wet or dry soils. Try growing it where it can spill down a wall, or hang from a basket, so you can enjoy its flowers.
