Thanks Synangium, Your eyes

Thanks Synangium, Your eyes must be good, I looked but didn't see anything that could definitely point to Perforate.

H. perforatum

The translucent dots that give this species its name are most clearly visible in the top right of the photo, behind the 'wilted' leaf. The black glands in the lower left and middle right of the shot rule out H. pulchrum, which typically has red-tipped buds.

H. tetrapterum also shares translucent dots and black glands (though in the latter case, always on both sides of the leaves), but has a more oblong leaf shape. The ovate leaves in this photo are spot on for H. perforatum.

Hope that helps,

Nigel
