Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Plants will spread quickly and form a large patch when grown in full sun or partial shade. Clumps can be easily divided in the spring and are a choice for a waterside or moist garden.  

Additional Notes about Gooseneck Loosestrife:

When I read, "Plants will spread quickly and form a large patch," I become concerned. It's not listed as invasive, but it's a non-native that spreads by rhizome as well as seed. Consider Veronicastrum virginicum for a similar look.
