COLOURS AND SHAPES

During the flowering phase, you can recognise Hypericum by the golden yellow flowers. Berries grow on the branches after that. These white to dramatically dark red berries quickly add a rugged twist to a pretty bunch of flowers.

SYMBOLISM

Hypericum is also known as St John’s wort. You’ve probably heard of it. This herb is often used to treat insomnia and depression. In the past, the herb was nicknamed ‘the devil chaser’. It was used as a protective herb against witches, sorcery and other misfortune. In other words, Hypericum in a bouquet ensures an evening without unwelcome visitors.

ORIGIN

Hypericum originates from Bulgaria and Turkey but can be found throughout Europe.
