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  Lemon IP will fill your fall garden with interest and your floral arrangements with large, creamy-yellow 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.

Magical line of Hypericum continues to get better with Lemon Improved as its forerunner. Bright yellow flowers in spring develop into plump, lemon-green fruits in July and August – the perfect pairing for a lemonade social.  Rust resistant and well-branched, use Lemon Improved for decorating your patio area, mixed borders and for cuts. The fruits last for weeks in a vase!
