Soil Type - Sandy loam, moist, well drained
Height - up to 4 ft
A good deer resistant plant. I've never had a nibble on my yellow loosestrife.
This plant prefers moist conditions but tolerates dryness fairly well. This Loosestrife can be very aggressive and growing it in dryer conditions is one of the best ways to keep it under control.
Yellow loosestrife is not related to the Purple loosestrife that is invading and dominating much of the north country's wet-lands. Rather it is related to another alien wildflower - Moneywort (Lysimachia nummularia) a small creeping vine.
