(aka: Hypericum Ruihyi174a) Hypericum 'Hypearl Compact Red', from Holland's De Ruiter Innovations, B.V., is an astonishing breakthrough in St. John's Wort for the garden. These amazing shrublets, created from a cross of Hypericum androsaemum × Hypericum hircinum, form a 4' tall x 4' wide mass of upright stems, clothed with thumb-sized glaucous green leaves and topped, starting in May and continuing non-stop into November (NC) with bright yellow flowers, followed with bright red fruit that lasts well through fall, giving it a tremendously long season of interest. Since Hypericum 'Hypearl Compact Red' was bred for the cut flower trade, you'll probably want to buy more vases. Hypericum 'Hypearl Compact Red' has really impressed us in our garden trials...we hope you share our excitement.
