Hypericum calycinum, also known as St. John's Wort or Aaron's Beard, is a versatile and resilient plant that brings a splash of sunshine with its bright-yellow flowers which bloom from summer through to autumn, providing a long season of colour.
St John's Wort is a semi-evergreen shrub that typically grows to about 0.5 metres in height and can spread up to 1 metre, making it an excellent choice for ground cover. Its dark green, oval-shaped leaves provide a beautiful contrast to the vibrant blooms, adding to its visual appeal.
One of the standout features of Hypericum calycinum is its adaptability. This plant thrives in a variety of conditions, from full sun to partial shade, and is tolerant of different soil types, including sandy, loamy, and clay soils. It's also drought-tolerant once established, making it a great low-maintenance choice for gardeners.
In addition to its beauty, St John's Wort is also known for its medicinal properties. This plant has a long history of use in traditional medicine, as it is believed to have antidepressant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also used as a natural remedy for skin conditions and as a nerve tonic.
