Hypericum calycinum St. John’s Wort
St. John's Wort is a beautiful pollinator attracting plant for any garden needing a showy display of yellow flowers from late spring through the summer months. St. John's Wort is part of the Hypericaceae family. A perennial that likes wet areas also can tolerate dry locations. It performs best in partially shaded locations but can tolerate full sun. This bush has an upright habit that can reach a height of five feet when planted in its ideal location of moist soil and partial sun. Pollinators are attracted to this plant because of its nearly 25-100 large showy flowers per a stem that contain many stamens. Pollinators that are attracted to the showy flowers and nectar source include leaf cutter bees, bumble bees, beetles and flies. St. John’s Wort is an excellent addition for a pollinator restoration habitat. It can be propagated by seed, division or cuttings.
