When looking for detail in your flower arrangements that isn’t your typically greenery or flower consider adding the Hypericum Berry! It comes in many colors of the rainbow and is available all year around from most florists. It is also known as the St. John’s Wort or Coffee Berry so be sure to search those as well when looking up examples for your own wedding day flowers. I wanted to show you some examples of the varieties of bouquets that you can use this berry in from rustic to elegant it looks just beautiful.
Hypericum is available in Pink, Red, Burgundy, Peach, Orange, Green, and Brown.
Each stem has a cluster of berries. Each berry can reach 1/4 to 1/2″ depending on the season.
Each stem can reach about 18-24″ so you can add it to loose tall bouquets or short tight bouquets, whatever fits your style!
These berries can last a few days so if your arrangements are running a little light on water during your reception you can feel confident that they will look good the entire time unlike sensitive flowers like Hydrangeas.
Hypericum berries come in bundles of 10 stems so be sure to add them all throughout your wedding day arrangements!
How adorable is this flower girl’s crown? It is soft enough to not to overpower her look.
If you create a boutonniere with these berries try to not put it onto the groom and groomsmen until right before the ceremony or photos because the more hugs they give the better the chance some of these berries may fall off.
Hypericum is an excellent filler flower because the berries and small foliage on each allows them to take up a great amount of space. I enjoy using these berries because I know they are hardy enough that I know after I transport them to the wedding I won’t see a bunch of them in the bottom of our buckets. Be sure to chat with your florist if this would fit into your day well!
