How to plant lythrums

Also known as loosestrifes, lythrums are stunning herbaceous perennial plants that will grace your garden with tall, elegant flower spikes and sword-shape leaves throughout the summer. Naturally growing in wetlands located in the temperate zones of the Northen Hemisphere, these wonderful wild flowers are perfect for planting by the waterside or in the woodland border where they will attract an array of pollinating insects. Try planting with other perennials such as irises Sibirica, hemerocallises, phloxes, heleniums and rudbeckias.

Plant in moist, fertile soil in full sun — they will also tolerate drier conditions as long as they are watered regularly. Remove spent flowers to prevent self-seeding.

Always unpack on arrival and store in a cool place until ready to plant.

Potential problems, pests and diseases:

Generally, lythrums do not suffer from any serious diseases. However, they can be affected by snails and slugs that will happily eat away at the young shoots in the spring. Watch out for damage!
