When I posted the first picture a couple of months ago, asking for identification, no-one could name it and you asked for a picture of the flower.  So here is the plant again, which now has a stunning yellow flower and many more buds.  Can anyone identify it now please?

hypericum calycinum??  (Rose of Sharon) ??

Its gorgeous! I'd like one!

Flower is similar, but the plant is not right.

Sorry I don't know what it actually is though.

Hypericum olympicum I think or maybe H. polyphyllum

no doubt about Hypericum

Having googled Hypericum I think you are right nut - it is most like the images of the Polyphyllum.  Yes the flowers are exquisite, but only last a day or two - luckily there are plenty of buds on the plant.  I think it is a perennial, and although the plant itself isn't looks quite fragile I am hoping it will overwinter in it's place by the pond.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction AGAIN! x

Hi GD, yes, perennial but not one for a pond edge unless it's a dry one, more a rockery/gravel garden plant

Yes, the pond edge is a dry one - with pebbles used for decoration.  We haven't got the natural/wild pond edge I had hoped for - but it is still very nice and I am pleased this Hypericum Polyphyllum is a perennial.
