Shrubby St John's Wort will naturally form a round-bush appearance but can be pruned early spring for a more mounded shape. An absolute bee magnet that is not picky about its sun and soil needs. Able to grow under just about any soil condition you could throw at it, this lovely shrub is also quite resistant to deer and rabbits. It is a host plant for a variety of caterpillars and Gray Hairstreak Butterfly.
