Today’s post is a new wildflower for me … one I photographed in a small meadow just down the road from my rural Missouri home. I’m not positive, but pretty sure it is a Common St. John’s-wort (Hypericum perforatum). If anyone can confirm this, or let me know what it is, I’d appreciate it!
If this is the Common St. John’s-wort, it is a non-native, coming from Europe. Recently, derivatives of this wildflower have gained popularity as a treatment for depression.
