Possible to grow hypericum berries?

shapiro(5a Ontario)January 25, 2009

My niece is being married in August 09 and has asked me to grow her wedding flowers. Recently, she saw a bouquet with hypericum berries in it. Advice needed: can I buy seeds for this and grow it myself? Thanks!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hypericum is St. Johns Wort. I am pretty sure that the type florists use are shrubs (Hypericum androsaemum), and will take a pretty long time(a couple years) to produce berries if grown from seed. Plus, they are only hardy to zone 6.
