Great St. John’s Wort is a perennial that blooms for about three-weeks between the months of July and August. Its bright yellow blooms are a great food source for many pollinators. Bumblebees are the primary pollinators, but smaller bees and other insects also visit the flowers. Great St. John’s Wort is easily grown in moist, well-drained soils in full sun to partial shade. It has the largest flower size in the St. John’s Wort family. Its flowers produce no nectar, only pollen. Making this a great plant for native Bumble Bees, as there is no competition from European Honey Bees.
