Hypericum: from yellow flower to colourful berry

Hypericum blooms with golden flowers the develop into colourful berries over the season. Red is the main colour, but you also get Hypericum with pink, green, white and even near-black berries.

Surprising effect
The berries are particularly used in bouquets, but to achieve a surprising effect you can also give Hypericum the central role in an arrangement. In a necklace, hair corsage or wreath, for example.

St. John’s wort
Hypericum is a member of the Hypericaceae (St. John’s wort family), and it is commonly known as St John’s wort. The name Hypericum is derived from Hyperion, the Greek god and father of Helios, the sun. That references the yellow flowers.
