(St Johns Wort) Yellow Lemon Drop Flowers Shine Throughout Summer
An abundance of petite, radiant yellow blooms shine brightly from July thru September on this tightly branched shrub. Native to North America Hypericum forms a 2-3 foot tall and wide mounded habit of dark green foliage with willow-like leaves. St Johns Wart is a drought tolerant and deer resistant shrub that will add season long color to the garden.
Hardy to zones 4-8 Hypericum requires full sun and northern gardeners should mulch the roots in the winter for protection. Prune to shape in late fall or early spring. Hypericum displays well as a specimen shrub, en masse, along perennial and shrub borders, and in containers.
