This charming little shrublet has a much longer name that we won’t bore you with here. Suffice it to say Hypericum Citrinum has semi-evergreen blue green foliage, against which the large lemony yellow flowers look rather fetching through the summer. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 15 in. 1 litre pot.


Having said we won't bore you with the full name, for the sake of accuracy and completeness we feel we should, so here it is: Hypericum Olympicum f. Uniflorum Citrinum. This little thing has more names than a member of the Royal Family!

Hypericum is in fact a pretty big family, with more than 400 members. Hypericum Olympicum is from the European branch, specifically nothern parts of Turkey and Greece, where its sprawls on rocky slopes. Citrinum makes a good specimen for the rockery, given its stature and growth habit.

Little is needed in the way of care: perhaps trim off old flowers as they go over to encourage more to form, and tidy things up in late autumn or spring.

Hypericum Citrinum is a small shrub with blue green semi-evergreen foliage and large lemon yellow flowers in summer suitable for sun or semi-shade.
