Hypericum tomentosum

Hypericum tomentosum
woolly St. John's wort

Common name woolly St. John's wort
Family clusiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers yellow
Size 6-8"
Light sun

Makes a mat of silvery-woolly leaves, with bright yellow flowers. The flower bracts have an odd appearance up close, as they are lined with tiny hairs with black ends. They must be related to spiders in some way. Flowers close up by the afternoon.

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