Stems - To +80cm tall, herbaceous, erect, 4-angled, glabrous or with glandular pubescence at upper nodes, multiple from base, simple to branching above, rhizomatous.

Leaves - Opposite, petiolate, decussate. Petioles slightly winged by decurrent leaf tissue, to +3cm long. Wings -1mm broad, ciliate-margined. Blade ovate to oblong-lanceolate, acute to acuminate, rounded to cuneate at base, to +11cm long, +4cm broad, glabrous, minutely serrulate on margins.

Lysimachia ciliata petiole Arrows shows cilia of petiole.

Inflorescence - Axillary pedunculate flowers, from upper leaf axils. Peduncles to +4cm long, glandular-puberulent. Flowers nodding.

Flowers - Corolla yellow, deeply 5-lobed, glandular externally, slightly orange to reddish at base. Corolla tube to +1mm long. Lobes to 1.3cm long, 1cm broad, glandular internally (dense near base), apiculate, erose. Staminodes present, 1mm long, alternating with stamens, lance-attenuate. Stamens 5, erect, adnate at base of corolla tube. Filaments to 2.5mm long, yellow, glandular. Anthers yellowish, 2.5-3mm long. Ovary superior, green, globose, 1.5mm in diameter. Placentation free central. Style 5mm long, glabrous, green. Calyx tube to 2mm long, glabrous, 5-lobed. Lobes spreading, 6-7mm long, 2mm broad, linear-lanceolate, acute to acuminate, entire, glabrous. Capsule globose (sub-globose), glabrous, +5mm in diameter, many seeded, dehiscing by 5 valves, brownish.

Flowering - May - July.

Habitat - Moist low woods, wet prairies, streambanks, pond margins.

V. J. Coffey and S. B. Jones (1980) indicated a population of Lysimachia ciliata in central Alaska without further locality data. This was probably an error; no records of this species from Alaska have been verified.
