Buy Hypericum × hidcoteense 'Hidcote' St. John's wort: Golden-yellow flowers over several months

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately-fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of golden-yellow, cup-shaped flowers smother this evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub from July to October, creating a superb, long-lasting display. Perfect for the mixed or shrub border, where it will flourish in either full sun or partial shade. Dense and bushy in habit, it requires moderately-fertile, moist but well-drained soil and will appreciate protection from cold, drying winds.

  • Garden care: After flowering lightly trim back shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.

A good medium sized shrub with attractive yellow flowers. Not showy on its own but perfect as permanent structure in a yellow border. Very easy and tough.

Is this plant poisonous if eaten?

Mummygardener

Hello, I would not recommend eating any part of this plant, however it is not listed as being toxic.

Helen

Hi, have always loved this and would like to know if it would survive in a large patio pot. If not, we have a shaded area next to our garden house with heavy clay soil, would that location be better? Any help would be appreciated, many thanks, Lorraine

Hello, This is a wonderful, long-flowering shrub and it will do well in a large pot, provided it is kept well fed and watered.
