In this post I share my Tutsan (Hypericum Androsaemum) in a personal review. You’ll find video and images in this post sharing my personal experience with the plant.
Tutsan Hypericum Androsaemum In My Landscape
I’ll be honest, at first I really didn’t know what this plant was the 2nd year in my landscape. I had lost the tag and thought it would be fun to reach out on social media to find clues. Totally shocked that I didn’t take a photo of the tag when I bought it on clearance last year. It must be some where in the archive. Either way, I can honestly say I didn’t think the plant would make it and kind of didn’t care because I bought it so cheap.
I love that bloom image above I may end up printing it to hang in my home. WOWZA!
After doing research today I am really leaning toward the idea of this variety being a hybrid. There were a few post that had the Tutsan labelled in with weeds. Mine is NOT spreading and does great in mostly sun area where it is dry. Could this be the ‘Pumpkin’ Hypericum calycinum variety. We will see as the plant grows. Below are a few of the other names I found online to ID the tutsan plant. There is one thing for sure, I will most likely be sticking with ‘st. john wort’ or just tutsan when IDing in future shares.
- Hypericum calycinum ‘pumpkin’
- Creeping St. John’s Wort
- Aaron’s Beard
- Red Star Hypericum x inodorum ‘Kolmarest’
