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 this new 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,  Orange will fill your fall garden with interest and your floral arrangements with large, bright orange 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.

An unusual color, Rocket’s watermelon red fruits are certain to put on a show for the late- season garden party. An exceptional, rust resistant selection from the Magical series, plant Rocket in mixed containers or directly in the ground for 5-6 weeks of fruitful enjoyment. A great habit – more upright than most.
