Plant identification #677572

Asked 2020-11-20 19:22:57

These shiny tender green leafy plants are interesting to me as a forager. Is it related to bacopa.? I find them now in cool weather, in damp/wet areas. Are you able to identify?

Expert Response

This is a type of Lysimachia called Creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia). https://www.marylandbiodiversity.com/view/2851  It is a non-native plant that is sometimes used as a groundcover or as a spilling plant in containers and baskets. It can escape cultivation and become weedy. It is not related to Bacopa.
