Purple loosestrife is a very beautiful lakeside plant. It thrives best in wet soil, such as wet meadows, along lakeshores, rivers, streams and the like. Once it has taken hold, it also thrives in tall grass.

You can germinate the plant outdoors in pots by crushing the seed pod between your fingers and spreading the seeds inside on top of the soil or under a little sand in pots and wait for germination - mix the seeds in a little sand or soil and spread this in the top of a pot, as the seeds are very small and difficult to handle. Each seed pod contains 8-10 seeds. Once the plant has formed a good root system, plant it out where you want it and keep it moist at first. Once the plant has taken hold, it can easily fight against tall grass and other vegetation, but it needs a little help to get started.
