There are numerous species and varieties of Lysimachia and few are of real use for indoor decoration, although the prostrate stems of L. ruunmularia (Creeping Jenny), with their yellow flowers, can be effective in some decorations. L. clethroides with its 2-3-ft arching spikes of white flowers is, however, the most useful for cutting purposes. Recently a particularly fine series of monardas has been raised, including shades of pink with such attractive names as ‘Clover’, ‘Melissa’, ‘Pink Ponticum’ and ‘Valerian’. There are also blue, purple, red, dark ruby, mahogany and magenta forms.
