Creeping Jenny - she blooms!
I planted these two urns in front of Michael's salon with Creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia), Million Belles (Callibrachoa) and Spike Plant. A few weeks ago, he came home and asked me if I knew that Creeping Jenny bloomed because the ones at the salon were blooming like crazy! I confess, I didn't know this and I've never seen one blooming. He said a client was also quizzing him about it and wanted to know if it was a special variety. After googling it, it seems that everyone else knows that Creeping Jenny does indeed bloom. Maybe it prefers the hot concrete surroundings and bright light in order to do so. This is one of my favorite pot plants and groundcovers, but I've never seen it blooming in our garden.
