Hypericum androsaemum, otherwise known as Tutsan. Mine has finished flowering now and the clusters of berries are starting to turn a lovely bronze shade. They go red eventually.

The flowers are much smaller than Hidcote, Gee and it doesn't flower for very long, unlike Hidcote which I think goes on and on.

My St John 's Wort looks very much like that....Hypericum perforatum
And it is considered to be similar to Prozac in it's affect's when taken.
Can also cause hypersentivity in an animals who graze on it.
I am trying to get rid of mine as it is quite a noxious weed.
