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....

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.
