Hypericum (St Johns-wort)

Difficult to tell from the photo - but it looks a bit hairy? If it is it is perhaps H.elodes (Marsh) with reddish sepals or H. hirsutum (hairy)with black glands on the sepals?
If it is perforatum - the leaves, when held to the light will be have slight holes visible with a lens or even the naked eye, it will be hairless and the sepals should be smooth in outline and acutely pointed?

Jizz

To me, it has the jizz of Hypericum tetrapterum which would need a wet habitat.
