Description: This hypericum has such tiny needle-like leaves that are dwarfed by the yellow flowers typical of hypericums. It is native to the edges of limestone sinks. So once established, it can handle some drought and also much temporary flooding. It should be planted in well-drained soil. It cannot handle boggy conditions.
