Lysimachia atropurpurea 'Beaujolais'
Burgundy Gooseneck Loosestrife
Currently unavailable
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period May-September
Height 12-18in/30-50cm
Light preference Full sun/part shade
Soil preference Any reasonable, moist soil, well-drained
Sowing time/depth Spring, Autumn, Surface
This short-lived perennial is more usually grown as a biennial, and can be permitted to gently self-seed. The flower spikes are similar in shape to the more widely-known Lysimachia clethroides, but instead of white, the blooms are a rich burgundy colour, contrasting well with small, slightly crinkly, grey-green leaves. Attractive to butterflies and other pollinating insects, it is also a lovely cut flower.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow under glass in spring or autumn on the surface of moist, but not waterlogged, compost at about 15C/60F. Germination can be erratic but usually takes 30-90 days. Transplant seedlings into individual pots and grown on, planting out in moist, well drained soil in sun or part-shade after all danger of frost has passed. It is best to keep autumn-grown plants somewhere frost-free.
