Plant of the Week 06/21/2019
Hypericum frondosum 'Sunburst' - Zone 4-8
Blue-green foliage gives a beautiful backdrop for the vibrant yellow flowers of this compact shrub. Looks best when planted in rows to create an informal hedge or as a companion plant to blue mist spireas.
Plant in partial to full sun and water regularly. Can tolerate most soils but prefers loamy soil that is well drained. Deer and rabbit resistant. Drought tolerant once established.
A moderate grower than can reach 2-3 feet tall and 4 feet wide. Blooms in midsummer turn into ornamental red fruit in the fall. Prune in late winter for a cleaner looking plant.
