There are several stocks of these berries in a Thanksgiving flower arrangement that I received. Can someone tell me what tree, shrub or bush they come from? Thank you very much! Thank You!

It does look like fruit of Hypericum:

Thank You! @greene and @plantladylin! I would L-O-V-E to grow this! Any suggestions? Do either of you have any seeds? I am assuming that the stalks that I have may not have ripened enough to have viable seeds....?

Enjoy your day, Terri

Nope, I've never grown Hypericum but it sure is pretty!

I don't have seeds to share at this time, sorry.
Looking in our "Green Pages" I see that Annie's Annuals & Perennials carries one.

Terri, I don't know a thing about Hypericum/St. John's Wort but I'd lay those pods out on paper towels or newspaper to dry out; you might possibly get some viable seeds.

Yes Terry, I had tried to grow some from floral bouquet in the past, dry it, inside you'll see many small seeds, they surely grow, so try it! but it takes time.
And they also grow easy from cutting, I grow mine by buying cut flower (they sell it quite long with enough fresh woody stem).

@tofitropic Hello and Welcome! ! Thank you for your suggestions. I realized that I am a true gardener when I started looking for seeds and cuttings in the floral arrangements people have sent to me. I have even "rescued" seeds and cuttings from discarded plants at WalMart! Whistling

@plantladylin and @greene - thank you too (two) for y'alls suggestions. I am going to try to remember using the member resources more often. There is just sooo much available on this NGA site that I forget to use the different forums. I just participated in my first seed swap and had a great time! Hurray!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
