Can anyone help me with this perennial please.  This photo is from July last year.  It's thriving in a relatively shady spot but taking over a bit.  New shoots already this year so I wondering whether this is a good time for a bit of surgery.

    Looks like Lysimachia punctata.  It is rather vigorous when happy so a bit of control now is a good idea. image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Looks like lysimacnia punctata, it can take over a bit but is easy to cut back and dig out the bits you don't want. 

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

    Thanks both.  I've taken a look at a few photos of Lysimachia and you are dead right.  Think I might remove half and relocate to another shady spot that needs some colour to brighten it up.
