Hypericum hircinum (Fragrant St. John's Wort / Tutsan)


Fresh Seeds of Hypericum hircinum (Fragrant St. John's Wort / Tutsan).

An enchanting perennial shrub, growing to around 2-3 ft in height, gracing the garden with its understated yet captivating presence.

Spring foliage emerges in hues of blue-green with red undersides, and often red edges. As summer unfolds, the shrub is adorned with an abundance of delicate, golden-yellow flowers with long stamens, which beckon bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The vivid yellow blossoms stand out in charming contrast against the surrounding blue-green foliage, fashioning a stunning and joyful spectacle.

As autumn approaches, green berries transform into a palette of pink, red, and ultimately purple or black. These decorative berries persist into late autumn, extending the shrub's visual allure well beyond the flowering season. The foliage undergoes a beautiful transition, showcasing warm autumn colours, offering delight to any garden landscape. 

Grows well within any reasonable soil in sun or shade.  Fully frost hardy to -20ºC.


Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack.
