Lythrum Rosy Gem

MeelyMeely Posts: 79
I'd like to plant this in my garden, I've got the moisture retentive poorly drained soil it needs but the position is like to put it in isnt in full sun all day. It will get a fair amount of sun however (maybe 5-7 hours) but will it be enough? Does anyone grow this or similar lythrum and know the answer?


  • I would say that 5-7 hours is plenty.

    Hey thanks for your comments. I will try it, I can always move it if not happy I guess! 

  • Can I take cuttings of Lythrum Rosy gems? Any information would be very helpful
