I am trying to identify a plant.

Post  JuneBug48 on 6/17/2017, 1:19 pm

A fellow gardener passed along a plot to me last year(2016), and said her Grandmother gave it to her å said it was called Yellow Bells.  I have searched many resources, including my personal extensive gardenia library, my extension office, common name cross reference books, the internet, other gardeners, etc.  I still have no clue as to the botanical name of this plant.  Sad

that last post should have read "passed along a plant to me'.  I apologize for not taking a closer look before hitting the send button.  Embarassed

I have the variegated version of this loosestrife, called 'Golden Alexander'. It's very well behaved.

Yes, I have this plant too, very pretty, well behaved, not invasive.  No care at all!  I also have purple loostrife, and a white gooseneck variety.  Love them all, but the white gooseneck needs to be reined in regularly....

Yes, I, too, have this plant and it does try to move into the adjacent area.

The white is the only one that I have to contain.  I love them though, and so do the pollinators!

I funny incident from last year regarding this plant.  I visited our Farmers' Market and I saw a pot marked Loosetrife and was about to buy it, when the vendor kindly looked it up in a beautiful book he had been given that illustrated hundreds of flowers.

You guessed it; I already had it in my garden for years.  So the poor vendor lost out by being helpful. 

But I did buy  a couple of Hollyhocks that gave a lovely splash of colour in the garden last year and will so again this year so I was well pleased.
