Hypericum punctatum

Most people are familiar with St. John’s wort due to its historical usage in herbal medicines. Spotted St. John’s wort is the species native to our area.


Easily distinguished from other varieties by the visible spots all over the yellow petals, Spotted St. John’s Wort is a highly attractive plant to native bees, and serves as a host plant for 22 species of butterflies and moths.


Care should be taken when handling the plants, as the leaves contain hypericin which can cause skin irritation.
