    Can anyone tell me what this yellow plant is called? I have it in partial shade, it has been blooming for about three weeks now. It is the taller plant in the back (I already know the smaller plants name in front). We are in zone 6 if that helps and it is a perennial since it came back up this year. It is a little over 2' tall at the tallest point. I need to put a plant marker with it, but have no clue what it is called.
    Thanks!

    Hm. The flowering and growth habits remind me of lupines, but I've never seen lupines like that!

    I'm going to peruse the perennial section at the flower farm on Sunday if no one has identified this by then!

    Garden Loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata...not to be confused with one ending in "vulgaris" that is a noxious wetland weed). I have it also and it spreads very nicely...not too aggressive, just right!
