Poised to be a popular perennial in the future, not many gardeners know about Purple Lance-Leaved Loosestrife. Introduced by Growild Nursery in Fairview, TN, this moneywort relative is a tough easy-to-grow selection of a species native to states east of the Mississippi River. It has performed incredibly well in our garden for several years. A deer proof plant that blooms late spring into early summer, its flowers are light yellow and contrast brilliantly with its wine-red to bronze foliage.
