Plump, peachy-pink berries

Hypericum inodorum Magical® Desire

Soft yellow flowers that mature to long lasting, peachy-pink fruits reminiscent of a basket of freshly picked ripe peaches.

We guarantee beautifully colored berries on perfectly formed plants, whether it’s in the garden, as a lovely addition to any floral bouquet, or a brightly colored accent on your doorstep in the fall. This new line of St. John’s wort gives you break-through, saturated colors that have never been seen before. We promise these new plants will fill your fall garden with interest and your floral arrangements and containers with large, shiny long-lasting berries!

Magical Desire begins the season with beautiful, soft yellow flowers that mature to long lasting, peachy-pink berries reminiscent of a basket of freshly picked ripe peaches. This new rust resistant selection will add a bright, yet soft color to your autumn planting and decorating palette. Pair Desire with deep maroon and blue blooming plants for a bold combination.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
