Hypericum x hidcoteense ‘Hidcote’ or St. John’s Wort, is a maintenance-free shrub you can prune in early spring. Hypericum x hidcoteense ‘Hidcote’ is a genus of almost 500 plants. In some locations such as farms, the plant is even considered a weed. St John’s Wort has also been used in medicine and herbalism as an antidepressant. The flowers are yellow and it is a deciduous shrub that grows well in sun or partial shade. I came across this Hypericum x hidcoteense ‘Hidcote’ while walking through one of the city parks in London.
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
