There are three things to keep in mind with Hypericum:
- Hypericum berries are large clusters of deep-brown branching berries atop slender, woody stems. The berries should be large and full, with a smooth, firm appearance. The berries also come in shades of pink and peach and deep burgundy.
- Older Hypericum berries are wrinkled and soft to the touch. They may also change color with age.
- Hypericum berries are wonderful accents for fall and winter bouquets. Most berries drop from the branches when handled or with age, but Hypericum berries stay attached to the stem, making them easy to use in arrangements.
