Hi Nils,

seems you searched a bit too quickly, as there IS a German commercial 
source: "Die Falle" lists it (page 43 on this pricelist: as companion plant for 
carnivorous bog plants, which may explain why I've never seen it in my 
lime-heavy Swabian Jura. I have one planted in my newly started bog, but 
I guess it has yet to wake up. I'll keep you informed how it fares. It's 
a Lysimachia now? One of those genera I'm not a fan of the lumpers, as i 
feel it's too wide in its variations. If taxonomists have too much time 
on their hands, go sort out Campanula, that genus is a mess.

A quick search did not show any source for plants. It is a charming simple plant even compared to the others in its previous genus Trientalis; pure white flowers on very thin stems, so they almost seem to float above the ground. It makes Anemone nemorosa look brash. Almost all flowers have seven petals, and most shoots carry one or two flowers. I will try to provide some pictures for the wiki when they flower.
