Since Lysimachia Species is under review, adding a couple of them seen in New Jersey during my visit a couple of years ago.
A cultivated, garden plant seen in a garden in New Jersey. 
Could be Lysimachia punctata?

Or could be Lysimachia vulgaris?

Yes , it is.

Thanks for validating my suggested Species.

But which one of the two?
Lysimachia punctata or Lysimachia vulgaris?
I am confused.

vulgaris !

I think more closer to images of Lysimachia punctata as per

Thanks for the correction. This is what I had suggested initially.

This is L. punctata. The two very similar species can be easily differentiated

L. vulgaris: Flowers smaller, 8-12 mm across, in terminal panicles, calyx lobes ovate
L. punctata: Flowers 12-19 mm across, in axillary clusters or single in leaf axils, calyx lobes narrowly lanceolate

here is another plant for ID from a house in Wetter, Germany.

First image looks different sp. and the remaining images looks like Lysimachia sp.

It is Lysimachia punctata
