Hypericum

Thanks for that Chris. These Hypericums always cause me difficulty.

Learning

Hi John, I'm on a learning curve with these as well, it happens I posted one this morning so I was at an advantage I suppose. The stems seem to hold the clue, the shape and whether they are hairy. Regards Chris.

Very instructive

Thank you both.

I'm now very confident that the local Hypericums I've been looking at here are H. perforatum. There should be some H. hirsutum around according to the local 1 km distribution maps, and I know what to look for now.

iSpot is making this genus much clearer to me.
