Hypericum sp.

Hypericum sp.
shrubby St. John's wort

Common name shrubby St. John's wort
Family clusiaceae
Life cycle shrub
Flowers yellow (summer)

Grown from seed collected in my parents' garden in the Netherlands, I don't know the exact species of this one. It grows into a sizable shrub, with red fruits following the yellow flowers. The fruits are suitable for flower arrangements.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
