Winchester Gardens generally stocks this item.
Helenium – In the wild garden, bronzy varieties of helenium combine blend well with the purple form of hairy loosestrife.
Calla – In wet places in mild regions, white calla lily is a surprising but effective companion for yellow loosestrife. The flower forms are in dramatic contrast with each other, and they enjoy similar conditions.
Daylily – With similar bloom times, yellow and gold daylilies provide a color echo with yellow loosestrife but with contrasting flower shape.
Veronica – The bright blue, upright spikes of speedwell complement yellow loosestrife in color and form. Well-drained soil in a sunny spot is ideal for both.
