Notes for Identification:  aaron's beard (hypericum calycinum) is a dwarf evergreen or semi evergreen shrub that spreads by runners.  fruit is a persistent, dry, 3-valved capsulecare:  mow it to the ground every year or two in winter or early spring to rejuvenate and induce new growth. Aaron's beard does well in full sun to partial shade, and tolerates almost complete shade. The more sun it gets, however, the more it blooms. Plants in quite shady situations flower very little. Although aaron's beard can survive droughts, it does best with regular watering. Aaron's beard makes a great groundcover because it tolerates poor, dry soils, thrives in the shade, even over tree roots, and spreads fast. As a ground cover it has few peers. Use it to control erosion on slopes, or to cover that bare ground under the big oak tree ~source: floridata    pin it
