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 Limelight will fill your fall garden with interest and your floral arrangements with large, apple-green 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.

Intenesly illuminated, the bright berries of Limelight look like they are fit for the stage.  A well-branched, compact plant, everything about this variety measures up to show quality.  Plant Limelight in your mixed borders for an exciting display of color later in the growing season, or use as a decorative element in containers on your porch or patio.  And, if you’re brave enough to snip a few branches, the fruits will last for weeks as a cut flower. A multi-faceted plant, for sure!
