It has been proposed (Ulrika Manns & Arne A. Anderberg; New combinations and names in Lysimachia (Myrsinaceae) for species of Anagallis, Pelletiera and Trientalis, Willdenowia, 39(1):pp 49-54; 2009) that the genus Trientalis be transferred to Lysimachia. This proposal has not yet been accepted, so we are leaving this species under Trientalis. If the proposal does get accepted then the name for this species will become Lysimachia europaea (L.) U.Manns & Anderb.[
Lysimachia europaea (L.) U. Manns & Anderb.
Lysimachia trientalis Klatt
Common Name: Chickweed Wintergreen
Trientalis europaea is a perennial plant that can grow up to 0.25 metres tall.
It has uses.
Northern Europe, including Britain, to northern Asia.
In pine woods, amongst moss in grassy places, usually rooting in humus[
We have very little information on this species and would suggest growing the plant in an acid soil in light shade[
]. See the plants native habitat for more ideas on its cultivation needs.
Seed - we have no information for this species but suggest sowing the seed in spring in a cold frame. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in early summer.
If you have sufficient seed it could be worthwhile trying an outdoor sowing in situ in mid spring.
