  • Common Name: Creeping Jenny (Moneywort, Creeping Charlie)
  • Latin Name: Lysimachia nummularia
  • Family Name: Primulaceae

Although this plant contains some saponins, it is non-toxic if fed as part of a varied diet. It is most often seen in gardens, but it will also grow in boggy areas near a pond.

Do not confuse this plant with Ground Ivy, which also has the common name Creeping Charlie, but which is toxic.
