Lysimachia terrestris (swamp candles) 1-3'h, yellow flowers mid to late summer, full sun, wet soil, native to DE

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center webpage states that this plant is of special value to native bees. They also describe it as a handsome plant. I concur. The white plant flowering in the background is Itea virginica 'Henry's Garnet'.
