(aka: Hypericum 'Crowthyp') Hypericum calycinum 'Fiesta' is an amazing variegated form of the popular evergreen groundcover St. John's wort, Hypericum calycinum. Hypericum 'Fiesta' forms a 1' tall, slowly-stoloniferous groundcover, composed of arching woody branches. The stems are adorned with amazing finger-sized leaves with a green central pattern surrounded by a chartreuse yellow edge and with a pink flush on the new growth. If that's not enough, the clumps are topped with bright, 2.5" wide yellow flowers in summer. Although fairly drought tolerant, Hypericum calycinum 'Fiesta' thrives better in evenly moist, well-drained soils. After a long winter, if your plants look more ragged than you when you wake, just mow them to the ground and they'll reflush beautifully. If that's not enough, Hypericum calycinum is used medicinally as an anti-inflammatory treatment for wounds.
