Hypercium

Hypericum Hidcote, a herbaceous perennial, is by the most common of the group producing masses of medium-sized yellow flowers from July to August. It is evergreen in most winters and forms an attractive dome-shaped shrub that is extremely easy to care for. A native of dry hot areas of southern Europe, this plant is grown from cuttings to prevent root disturbance. It may be propagated by either stem or leaf cuttings taken in September and potted into a mixture of equal parts loam, peat, and sand. When the new shoots are about 7cm long, pinch out the top to encourage bushy growth. When established pot up into standard size in February. This is a good hedge variety and provides an excellent informal screen when planted at 2ft intervals.

The leaves are green, the flowers yellow and they grow up to 25-30 cm across. This plant is often used in dried flower arrangements. The foliage is dark green with tiny hairs on the underside which give it a silver look when held just so by the sun. The stems are thin and may take several years to reach their full height of around 1.8 meters. It is a great plant on heavy land, on chalk or clay soils. The Latin name 'hidcote' means low growing so this variety must have evolved from the taller St Mary's-hood which can grow up to five feet tall. Pruning group 9 - flower buds are formed in autumn and winter but they open in summer. To grow this plant in the correct way, cut back old stems to ground level in autumn, with just enough new growth left to keep it alive through winter.
