(St. John's Wort) Golden Rule® Hypericum breaks every golden rule. The foliage of Golden Rule® is like no other. In the spring the new foliage starts off as a golden orange color and as the summer sets in, the foliage turns to a stunning gold. Standing only 12 inches tall, Golden Rule® makes a great groundcover or for planting in small spaces. Golden Rule® prefers to be planted in a part shade to full shade location staying out of the direct hot afternoon sun, unlike most other Hypericum. Although tolerant of most soils it does prefer well-drained locations. In the summer Golden Rule® has large, 2" yellow flowers that add to its appeal, although it is mostly grown for its bright foliage. Golden Rule® is a Native Shrub to North America and is deer resistant. A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrub.
