Hi my neighbour has this growing in his garden was just wondering if someone could tell me name of it as it was there before he moved in. Thanks.
Compare your plant to Lysimachia punctata.
Looks like Lysimachia punctata (yellow loosestrife) to me.
Thanks you so much, had a look this is definitely it. Going to try bring a cutting on now that I know what it is ( fingers crossed ).
A cutting from the stem is not likely to be successful but any piece you can get from the base of the plant with a bit of root attached will grow. It spreads easily and is extremely hardy. I am sure your neighbour would give you a little bit. That's all you'll need.
Thanks for advice. Will save a lot of time also.
an invasive in regional areas ...
but i surely dont know if so in scotland ...
did you find a big grove of it out in the middle of nowhere????
