Hypericum "Hidcote"   Hybrid St John's-wort C DD I

Hypericum hidcote Hypericum hidcote close

This sterile hybrid is often grown in gardens and escapes through people fly-tipping garden rubbish into places like the old quarry site where this one was found. Once it takes a hold it can be very vigorous and competes well with native shrubs.

In spite of its sterility, it can be found in a few sites in England but according to BSBI not at all in Wales where this one was photographed.
