St. John’s wort with ornamental fruit

For several years, we’d followed the development of fruiting St. John’s worts, developed for the florist industry, so finally we decided to get some plants for trial and see if they had any garden value. Much to our delight, they exceeded all of our expectations, so now we want to spread the word.  For us Hypericum ‘Hypearl Compact Red’, flowered and produced fruit from late spring all the way into fall…never without color all summer. If you’re a flower arranger, then there’s another reason to grow these in your garden. we hope they excite you as they do us.
