Hi oh knowledgable ones
Can you help with an id of this plant please:
I have mislaid the label and, unlike some of my friends, I don't keep a list of those I have planted
St. John's wort. Hypericum.
Did I get one?!!! did I?
You did! I recognise the name
Well done Snoodle
Hi panda, its Hypericum perforatum......St Johns Wort. I've got it, it gets coverd in large buttercup like flowers.
Whooping round the room! Whooping round the room!
Oops you beat me to it noodle
Thanks Lily Snoodle beat you to it and is suitably excited! I get that excited too and OH looks at me like I am mental
Snoodle - you're a star
Panda - keep an eye on it - its pretty, but a tad rampant
It has the room to be rampant Chicky
Here it is Panda
Only because I left the "perforatum" off. Quicker to type. But I knew that. yes, I did. No really, I did.
The whooping would be more suitably contained if hubbie hadn't gone for an early night....
I have it as a hedge dividing the 'garden' and the vegatable garden. It looks lovely covered in flowers. I cut it back after the frosts early spring.
That's a nice idea SG Lily. Given me an idea. Ta.
Snoodle, I think you were right to leave off the perforatum
That's one of the shrubby ones in the pic H patulum maybe. Perforatum is of a lighter stature, a herbaceous perennial
Nutcutlet, you're right......mine could be hidcote not petforatum ...oops silly me, its absolutley covered in buds at the mo.
Haven't got my label anymore either
Hidcote, yes, that's a patulum I think. I've manage to kill 2 of those over the years and I thought they were supposed to be easy going
