St John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is a name that is often applied to all members of the genus Hypericum. Here I confine myself to common, or perforated, St John’s Wort. I find it growing freely in south facing hedgerows all around the Kent countryside. It’s a tall, thin plant with bright, 5 petalled yellow flowers; interestingly the flowers make a vivid red oil when infused.
St John’s Wort ointment has traditionally been used for back aches & sciatica, sunburn and shingles rash.
