Hypericum kiusianum var. yakusimense

Hypericum kiusianum var. yakusimense

Family hypericaceae
Life cycle tender perennial (Z8)
Flowers yellow
Light sun

Yellow flowers, red fruit pods. I didn't do enough research before selecting this from the NARGS seed exchange - it looks like it isn't even close to hardy here. Yet I had two small plants survive winter on my second attempt, so maybe I'll get lucky and see some flowers anyhow. The leaves on this plant are tiny, together forming a dainty little cushion. It's planted right up front in our rock garden, so I can pay attention to it through the season.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
