St. John’s Wort or Golden Cup

St. John's Wort or Golden Cup

Took this photo of Hypericum patulum in a friend’s garden. The shrub has dark green leaves and beautiful large yellow blooms. Apparently got it’s name from early Christians because it blooms at the time when people traditionally celebrate St. John the Baptist’s birth (24 June).
