Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

In recent years Hypericum has risen to the top 50 cut flower stems in the world, making it the most successful berry producing shrub ever. With the introduction of the Magical Series, you can enjoy Hypericum that were exclusively bred for the cut flower industry in your own garden! What does this mean? It guarantees beautifully colored fruits on perfectly branched varieties for your enjoyment whether it’s in the garden or as cuts for your home.

A color break-through, Magical Cream will fill your fall garden with interest and your floral arrangements with large, creamy-white hips! Hypericum can be used as a specimen plant or planted in drifts where they can truly show off.  These are also truly rust resistant.

Much like the cream topping on a fresh fruit salad, the creamy-yellow berries of this Hypericum add a cooling element to the space around them when they are at their peak in the heat of July and August. A well-branched variety, great for a mixed garden bed as well as for cuts, Magical Cream offers multiple possibilities in a compact plant!
