It's St. John's Wort. But the species? All I know is it came from a nursery long ago and is called St. John's Wort. Apparently there a lot of Hypericum species in the database! Where do I put it?

Wow, what a beauty! I don't know Hypericum and maybe they all look alike?

Don't have a clue, but that is a beautiful photo! And it sure looks like the species Lin suggested, but your photo is certainly nicer than any I saw on that page!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Thanks, I agree, it is really pretty and I just go "wow" every spring when it starts blooming. So many kinds of St. John's Wort...who knew there were that many? I just don't know if that one is it!
