Hypericum calycinum is a cheerful variety that is the perfect plant for ground cover. Commonly referred to as the ‘Rose of Sharon', the large bright yellow star-shaped flowers have prominent red-tipped anthers and make a sunny display from June to September. The buttery flowers sit on a bed of ovate mid-green leaves which produce a lovely scent when slightly squeezed. Originating from exotic Turkey and Bulgaria, these fast-growing plants are extremely valuable for its weed smothering habits and long flowering season, where they are the perfect addition to brightening up any garden border in even shaded areas. They are also popular to pollinators and appeal to bees. Annually pruning stems to the ground improves flowering and resistance year after year. Grows to only 40cm, with a spread of up to 3m. 9cm pot grown plants supplied.
