they line the highways and byways in MI .. .this time of year ... growing in salt stained gravel ...

a glorious blue... so one day .. we decide to dig one up ... in early spring.. they arent that hard to ID.. and i put it in highly amended.. well watered... fertilized soil ...

by fall .. the darn thing was 8 feet tall .... lol ....

needless to say.. i got rid of it... who needs all that seed ... lol

same basic story with my first pokeweed.. but that got about 12 feet tall ... lol..

my lesson learned.. dont fert and water.. common weeds... they will take over the face of the earth ... lol ...

But to determine which species of Hypericum (St John's Wort) we need a picture of some leaves, stems and full plant. Or try is over on Name That Plant for a more specific id.
