Pests in Gardens and Landscapes
Hypericum, Gold flower, St. Johnswort—Hypericum spp.*
Family Hypericaceae (St. John's-Wort family)
Hypericum is an evergreen, semievergreen, or deciduous shrub or perennial. Flowers are yellow and resemble roses. They may be produced singly or in clusters.
*Some species of Hypericum are invasive weeds. Other types of plants may be better choices when planting.
Optimum conditions for growth
Hypericums are planted as ground covers, hedges, or borders. They do well in areas with full sun but require partial shade in very hot climates. Provide moderate to regular amounts of water. They do best in mild, moist areas. Reduce disease development by avoiding overhead watering in the evening.
