  • Common Name: Yellow Loosestrife
  • Latin Name: Lysimachia vulgaris
  • Family Name: Primulaceae
Although this plant contains some saponins, it is non-toxic as part of a varied diet. It is usually grown in gardens but can also be seen in the wild, where it prefers damp soil and can often be seen growing beside ponds and streams.  Do not confuse with Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria).
