Lysimachia nummularia Aurea, commonly known as creeping Jenny is an excellent pond plant quickly spreading out and providing cover for fish, frogs and tadpoles. It grows well on the surface of the pond in the floating pond ring that is included with all of our plants but can also be planted on the edges of a pond to cover pond liners. They are frost hardy, and their golden leaves provide a great contrast to the greens of most other pond plants. Creeping Jenny prefers morning sun, as full sun all day may burn their leaves.

Creeping Jenny is renowned for promoting digestive well-being. The leaves of this plant contain compounds believed to possess mild astringent and anti-inflammatory properties, rendering them beneficial for soothing gastrointestinal discomfort.

Moreover, Creeping Jenny is renowned for its potential to impart a calming influence on the nervous system. Traditional herbalists have harnessed this herb to foster relaxation, mitigate anxiety, and contribute to addressing sleep disorders. The leaves are commonly crafted into herbal teas or integrated into soothing blends to support mental well-being, fostering a sense of tranquility. To make a herbal tea using Creeping Jenny, simply use 2-3 teaspoons of fresh leaves and steep in boiling water for 5-7 minutes.

Beyond its digestive and calming attributes, Creeping Jenny has found external use due to its purported wound-healing and anti-inflammatory effects.
