This St. John's wort hybrid cultivar is a small, mounded shrub with reddish, arching stems and variegated, oval to oblong, rosy green leaves (to 2" long) which are edged with white. In warm winter climates, this shrub typically grows 2-3' tall. It grows somewhat smaller (12-15" tall) in cold winter climates where it basically dies back each year in the manner of an herbaceous perennial. Features 5-petaled, buttercup-like, yellow flowers (1.5" diameter) having numerous, bushy stamens. Flowers are borne singly or in clusters and appear from mid-summer to fall. Plants of the genus Hypericum (some species therein have been used since ancient times in the treatment of wounds) were apparently gathered and burned to ward off evil spirits on the eve of St. John's Day, thus giving rise to the genus common name of St. John's wort.
