Nice mid-border at about 18".
Can't find the label though!

It is a nice plant but be warned, like many Lysimachia, it has a tendency to run around the place. Perhaps a good one to contain with an aquatic basket dug into the soil?

18" is not high enough for lysimachia clerhoides, and the epis are not curved.
what if it was Lysimachia fortunei?

I find all but the common native Lysimachia, picky plants which will disappear for no obvious reason. Maybe my slightly acid heavy loam soil??????
I've not seen one that I dislike, and there are some nice variegated cultivars too.

 Lysimachia cletrhoides and Lysimachia fortunei sont magnifiques chez moi dans une terre limoneuse et argileuse, très lourde.
ils ont mis simplement du temps pour s'étoffer, et ne doivent pas souffrir de sécheresse tant qu'ils ne sont pas installés.

je pense avoir planté L. clethorides au moins 2 fois  avant qu'il n'accepte mon jardin. la première fois, je ne l'ai pas surveillé parce que le plant me semblait très vigoureux et que je pensait que çà ferait comme un L. punctata. mais non, ils sont moins solides.
j'ai essayé aussi d'en transplanter ailleurs dans mon jardin et j'ai échoué: je crois qu'il faut le tenir à l'oeil sa première année de culture pour qu'il n'ait jamais soif.i think i planted l. clethorides at least twice before it took over my garden. the first time i didn't watch it because it seemed very vigorous and i thought it would be like a l. punctata. but no, they are not as strong.
i also tried to transplant it elsewhere in my garden and failed: i think you have to keep an eye on it during its first year of cultivation so that it never gets thirsty.
I also tried L. ephemerum, but it died and I never found it for sale.
I planted L. atropurpureum, but it died after flowering.
I made Lysimachia japonica minutissima die in 3 weeks :-\

j'ai essayé aussi L. ephemerum, mais il est mort et je ne l'ai jamais  retrouvé en vente.
j'ai semé L. atropurpureum, mais il est mort après avoir fleurit.
j'ai fait mourrir Lysimachia japonica minutissima en 3 semaines :-\
