One new compound, 4-hydroxy-4a,7-dimethoxy-4,4a-dihydrodibenzo-p-dioxin-2(3H)-one (1), was isolated from the aerial parts of the hybrid Hypericum x ‘Hidcote’, together with 8 known compounds: caryophyllene-4,5-epoxide, quercetin, quercitrin, quercetin-3-O-β-D-galactopyranoside, epicatechin, betulinic acid methyl ester, β-sitosterol and β-sitosterol glucoside. The structure of the new compound, as well as its absolute configuration, was established by means of spectroscopic data analyses, including 2D NMR spectroscopy and X-ray structural analysis.
