Shrubby St. John’s Wort is a medium sized shrub, up to 4 feet high and wide. The naturally mounded form, covered in a dense foliage of small slender leaves, is easily pruned into a nice rounded shape in early spring.

A profusion of cheerful yellow flowers cover this shrub throughout the summer, attracting legions of pollinators. The 3-chambered, brown seed capsules persist throughout the winter and offer food for winter birds, along with late season visual interest.

The growth rate of Shrubby St. John’s Wort is slow but this beautiful shrub is well worth it! Highly adaptable and hardy, it does best in full sun in almost any soil, including heavy clay. Drought tolerant, rabbit and deer resistant.
