Another Plant Question!


A hillside planting

A close-up- Posted by Hello
Is this St. Johnswort (Hypericum)?
It's slowly taking over a hillside, which is fine with me as the hill is too steep to be useful and it crowds out the weeds!

You've got me stumped, too. But I agree with Cheesecakey, they are pretty. I certainly don't have a handle on all of the wildflowers in the East here, much less the West. If I keep reading your flower posts I will, though. :-)

cheesecakey & squirl-

My friend EJ, who is my plant guru, informed me that this indeed is St. Johnswort!

Mine usually bloom in mid-May, but with this years late rains they didn't flower until early June.

Could be St. John´s Wort - but the photos do not clearly show the flowers nor the stems or the leaves. You might have a look at my blog (http://www.west-of-house.net/hilltop/index.php/2005/06/19/regular/st-johns-wort/) for close-up photos and a description. Does it fit?
