Sunburst St Johns Wort
Bright Yellow Blooms in Summer
Beautiful yellow flowers and soft grey-green foliage are the hallmarks of St. Johns Wort 'Sunburst' ('Hypernicum' frodosum ‘Sunburst’). It blooms with daffodil-like blooms in mid-summer when many shrubs are challenged by the heat.
The flowers are bright, sunny yellow and are bigger than other St. John’s Wort flowers. Don’t let the cheery flowers and soft foliage fool you, though. This plant is a fighter. Given the right soil conditions – which range from loamy to sandy and everything in between – this plant will make itself right at home, even spreading out a little to form nice colonies
This American native is super easy to maintain and grow. It thrives in the Southeast without any care at all. In other parts of the country, it may lose its leaves during winter or even die back to the ground in a severe winter, but it will come back strong and true in the spring.
It loves full sun, but can’t stand wet feet, so pick a site in your garden accordingly. If you have a wooded edge (or want to get the look of one) this St. John’s Wort will fit right in. It makes a great transition between the yard and the woods, taming down the wildness. Alternately, it brings a nice ‘scruffiness’ to a very formal planting bed. Either way, it can fit into the garden that you have.
Because of that, we know that you have a spot in your garden for this easy, breezy native shrub! Buy yours today.
