Hypericum frondosum ‘Sunburst’
at Digging Dog

Hypericum

St. John´s Wort

Hypericum frondosum ‘Sunburst’ full sun  partial shade

In an ebullient “sunburst,” large 3 in. wide yellow petals cushion a spry central cluster of stamens that look like orange powder puffs. Dense stout branches plus oblong curvy leaves with soothing glaucous blue hues shape a compact round mound, revealing narrow reddish brown seed capsules through autumn and exfoliating purplish brown bark for winter appeal. Indigenous to our South-eastern limestone glades, this tailored semievergreen Hypericum can be massed or sited singularly in the mixed border where it triumphs over dry compacted soil and clay.

Blooms June-August

Size: 3'–4' high x 3'–4' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
