Lysimachia 'Walgoldalex' is a real WOW plant with a really bad name. This gold variegated sport of Lysimachia punctata 'Alexander' comes from UK plant breeder and plantsman, David Tristam. I actually saw the elusive Walgoldalex namesake in person while hiking in the Himalayas several years back. The 24", upright stems are clothed with round green leaves, each dramatically bordered in bright gold. Unlike Lysimachia 'Alexander', the leaves don't show the "drawstring effect." The clumps are adorned with terminal spikes of bright yellow flowers in midsummer. Moist soils will produce the best results for this non-invasive selection.
