Friendly Blooms with Benefits...
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 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.

Panhandled St John's Wort Plant
The plant is struggling with the current weather changes in the Florida PanHandle. After receiving the plant and going through a hardening period the plant appeared to be strong for the first eleven days. Planted under green house shade material and premium soil , the plant continues to shed and does not produce flowers any longer. I also have a horticulturist that lives at t my home and has done what she could.
We are so sorry to hear that your plant is struggling! We're going to reach out to you right away and we'll work to get it back on track!
