Hypericum punctatum, Spotted St. John's-wort $3 size

Hypericum punctatum

Spotted St. John's-wort 

  • Average to dry soils
  • Prefers full sun, will also grow in partial shade
  • 24” tall, 8” to 24” wide
  • Summer blooms 
  • Native to Ontario, beginner friendly

New to me this year, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery https://www.prairiemoon.com/hypericum-punctatum-dotted-st-johns-wort-prairie-moon-nursery.html  

This is the native St. John’s-wort species that I suspect is the best suited to filling a lot of spaces that are currently occupied by the introduced, and somewhat invasive, Eurasian Common St. John’s-wort (Hypericum perforatum). 

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
