Many thanks for your kind responses to my plea for help. I now know how to tackle the challenge!

On plant Lysimachia punctata




It's a nice plant, but it does want to take over, doesn't it.

I have always admired big clumps of this in other gardens....Resisted the temptation to bung a bit in mine.

I'm lucky to have the space to have a drift of it on the stream bank as well as in my top border, but even so, I have to dig some out every year to control it. I'd love to grow the variegated one, but I can't give it any more room. Hmmm..I wonder...maybe if I dug out all of one lot, I could! :-))))
