The Q&A Archives: hypericum

Question: Thank you for earlier prompt answer. I have another hypericum question. Does sunburst need pruning as does hidcote? Your plant care description does not mention it. I am looking for a low maintenance shrub for a sunny hillside.

Answer: Hypericum frondosum 'Sunburst' is a wonderful low maintenance shrub for the mixed border or hillside, forming 3-4' mounds of blue-green foliage with bright golden starburst blossoms in high summer. It isn't necessary to routinely prune Sunburst.
