Tufted loosestrife is a yellow-flowered, perennial species of the primrose family. It grows approximately half a metre high and its leaves grow as pairs on its upright stem. The clustered flowers grow from its axils and bloom from July to August.
Tufted loosestrife can be found in wet habitats. It occurs on shores and in peatlands, streams and ditches. Its range spans over Northern and Central Europe.
Tufted loosestrife might resemble Fireweed (Chamaenerion angustifolium) with its leaves and stem even though the species are not related.
As a common species tufted loosestrife requires no conservation measures to secure its viability.
