We are thrilled to see our 1998 introduction finally making its way into the mainstream trade. We were captivated when we first saw this gold leaf mutation of Hypericum calycinum on a 1995 visit to Oregon's Briggs Nursery. The plants were sent home with us and H. 'Briggadoon' was born. H. 'Briggadoon' makes a slowly stoloniferous thick groundcover of golden foliage on short arching 1' stems. In mid to late summer, the clumps are topped with yellow St. John's wort-like flowers...perfect for brightening a lightly shaded spot in the woodland garden. In colder climates, cut the old stems to the ground in early spring for best results.
