Hypericum 'Summergold' is a selection of the hybrid (H. androsaemum x H. hircinum) that makes an attractive 3' tall x 3" wide clump (larger on the West Coast). The thumb-sized leaves emerge a luscious gold in spring, then become highlighted with green streaks in midsummer and end the year as a chartreuse green. The upright, arching deciduous stems are topped in summer with 1" terminal yellow flowers. Although H. 'Summergold' is much better on the West Coast, we have had good success using it to brighten the garden in part sun to light shade...a real stunner, especially in spring!
