Solved : St. John's Wort
« on: June 11, 2001, 03:04:44 PM »
Just for somthing to do try to find out what this is.  I don't know either......yet.

It's a small plant about 8"-10" high. The flower is about the size of a quarter.  Picture taken today in NE Florida on the side of a dirt road and on the edge of a Hardwood swamp at about 9 ft above sea level.  The ground is 2" of sand on top of blue gumbo clay. :-/

Common or perhaps western St.-John's-wort

Hypericum perforatum

Yep, Me too.
I figured it must be common but it sure looks like the picture of western, doesn't it?

I love that site you used  Enature.com

I never have been there before....but I will now!
