Hypericum hypericoides is an evergreen shrub with a creeping habit, making dense mats of foliage up to 8 inches tall and about 1.5 feet across. Ovoid, opposite leaves line the stems and pale yellow four-petaled flowers bloom at the top. The flowers are irregular with the petals being in a ‘X’ shape rather than equidistant. Stems are thread-thin, the bark is a cinnamon reddish-brown color which contrasts nicely with the blue-green hue of the leaves. Blooms from June through August.
