A compact little shrub with large, beautiful, bright yellow flowers from June-August which are immensely popular with bumble bees. Seed capsules are cone-shaped, typical of St. Johnsworts, and fade from yellow-green to brown as they ripen going into the fall. Short, stiff, dark-green leaves resemble rosemary, remaining semi-evergreen during winter months. Prefers rich, sandy loams, but is tolerant of salt, drought, sand, and poor soil, and can even be planted in rock gardens. No serious pests or diseases, can also be used as a rain garden plant.
