Description

Lythrum salicifolia

Purple Loosestrife is a highly decorative wildflower perennial for full sun and moist soil. 60-90cm tall. Looks especially attractive grown with Meadowsweet. Good for bees and butterflies and as food for various beetles and weevils. Imported into parts of America and New Zealand, it has become a bit of a nuisance but is controlled biologically using beetles. Sow at any time of year.
