Description

This lovely bright yellow wildflower is now one of our most famous "weeds." St. Johns Wort (a native of Europe) occurs commonly along roadsides and hedgerows, and this herb has one of the most glamorous histories in the plant kingdom.

For our purposes, the starry flowers, which are always described as "frothy" due to the crowd of delicate stamens, are lovely in the garden and bunched at the end of stiff stems on dependably perennial plants.
