About This Plant

Partial shade or partial sun. An herbaceous shrub-like perennial, evergreen in warm winters. Long leaves resemble loosestrife, with multiple reddish stems and bright buttercup-like flowers throughout the warm season. Suncatcher is useful as an informal low screening hedge behind display beds; it forms dense stands. Prune as needed to contain and control height.

Maintenance

Reseeds aggressively to form monocultural stands. Cut back as needed after freezing weather.
