Benjamin, thank you for identifying a plant that I have long admired. The Fringed Loosestrife grows along the north facing embankment of my neighbor's yard and every year he just mows over hundreds of these bright cheery flowers. This year I decided to ask him if I could dig some of them up and he said yes. I now have approximately 20 of these long blooming plants on the edge of a woodland path intermingled with some hosta and lily of the valley. So far all but one has survived. I cannot wait for next spring both to enjoy them and dig up more:-)
