Hypericum ‘Hidcote’

14 Mar , 2015  

Hypericum Hidcote Hypericum HidcoteDescription: A compact, deciduous shrub that typically grows to 4′ tall in warm winter climates, but grows closer to 1.5-2′ tall in colder climates where it usually is cut or naturally dies to the ground in winter. Features rose-like, 5-petaled, waxy, cupped, golden yellow flowers (3” diameter) with numerous, prominent, dark yellow center stamens. Flowers of this popular hybrid are unusually large, slightly fragrant and bloom throughout the summer. Dark green, lance-shaped leaves are 2-3” long. Reddish, twiggy stems. Plants of the genus Hypericum (some species have been used since ancient times in the treatment of wounds and inflammations) were apparently gathered and burned to ward off evil spirits on the eve of St. John’s Day, thus giving rise to the genus common name of St. John’s wort. A Royal Horticutural Society of Great Britain Award of Garden Merit plant.
