Natural Bouquet After Rain

The Hypericum androsaemum, commonly known as Sweet-Amber (US name) and Tutsan (English name), is a plant in the genus St. John's-wort or Hypericum, native to open woods and hillsides in Eurasia.

It is a perennial shrub reaching up to 1.0-1.5 m in height.

The yellow flowers (1.5-3 cm in diameter), yellow then red then black berries provide interest and colour all year round.

 

De mansbloed (Hypericum androsaemum) is een rijkbloeiende en goed vruchtdragende hertshooi of Sint-Janskruid (Familie: Hypericaceae).

De soort groeit oorspronkelijk in open bossen en op heuvels in de gematigde gebieden van Eurazië. De hoogte na 10 jaar is 100 à 150 cm. De plant is winterhard.

De mansbloed is ook populair in de sierteelt.

De bijzonder mooie gele bloempjes (1,5-3 cm in diameter) verschijnen in mei - juni.

De besjes kleuren geel / oranje, daarna rood en in het najaar / de winter zwart.

Deze opname is gemaakt in de tuin van mijn 88 jarige moeder.
