This amazing moneywort is the handiwork of plantsman Darrell Probst. This semi-evergreen groundcover makes a nicely-spreading mass of small purple foliage. For us, it makes a 3' wide mat in one season but doesn't show tendencies to eat plants that it surrounds. In late spring, the purple foliage is topped by hundreds of golden bells...a really amazing sight. We've had great luck using Lysimachia 'Persian Chocolate' to cover extremely difficult, nearly vertical slopes. In hanging baskets or color bowls, it's a killer!
