Radiant blooms on a medicinal ground cover plant

The St John’s Wort takes low maintenance to a whole new level because after it’s planted it won’t need any attention. It’s drought tolerant, heat resistant, cold hardy, and pest resistant. Nothing stops this plant from thriving, we’ve even seen it come back after being mowed over.

For centuries the St John’s Wort has been cultivated for its believed healing properties. The ancient Greeks collected it to ward off evil spirits and it was annually collected on the eve of St John’s day to chase away evil with its bright healing colors.

Today the healing properties are found in the blooms in leaves because their oil provides relief from various skin conditions. The flowers also serve as an anti-inflammatory. Pick a few leaves and blooms and toss them in a salad for all-natural pain relief.

The St John’s Wort, or ‘Aaron’s Beard’, is a vibrant flowering shrub that has been popular for centuries due to its radiant yellow blooms and ability to grow anywhere, even in poor, dry soils.

By planting a St John’s Wort you will be adding three months of vibrant color to your landscape. In the early summer the St John’s Wort erupts with tons of large, bright yellow blossoms that last until August.

For a smaller shrub that only gets to about 3 feet tall, and two feet wide the St John’s wort has big color that can fit anywhere. It’s perfect for lining borders or driveways in smaller areas where larger shrubs would take over.

Place your St John’s Wort anywhere where color is missing. They will thrive in containers, shaded areas, and under trees. The St John’s Wort is the miracle ground cover plant that will grow anywhere.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your St John's Wort Plant



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your St John's Wort Plant.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your St John's Wort Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your St John's Wort Plant again after the transplant is complete.
