'Sunburst' St. John's Wort

Hypericum frondosum

Brightens the landscape with colorful flowers.


Sunburst is a small, dense, upright, mounded deciduous shrub with attractive blue-green foliage. It has large, golden-yellow flowers in mid-summer. Foliage may be semi-evergreen to evergreen in the southern part of its growing range. Mature size is 3 to 4 feet tall and wide.

Dense, blue-tinged, green foliage on a compact, upright shrub that is excellent as a foundation plant, in mass plantings, and informal hedges. Vivid yellow flowers with a distinctive puffball of stamens add sunny color to the summer landscape. Seldom grazed by rabbits or deer. Deciduous in colder regions; an evergreen in warmer climates.
