Thanks, Steve! I think this Hypericum is a wild one - you wouldn't happen to know its full name, would you?

Thanks, Amy! Maybe it isn't a wild one, after all! I shall 'edit' it. I have a photo of the whole thing, so I can add it to my plants!

No ... I think it is a wild one Spritz .... I have checked it , this is the discription ...30-70cm A dwarf deciduous shrub . the spreading stems with two raised lines ..Opposite leaves are broadly ovate to ovate-oblong, stalkless and sometimes clasp the stem .Flowers are yellow,in few-flowered terminal clusters . Sepals are 8-12mm ,unequal, enlarging in fruit ; petals slightly shorter than sepals ,numerous stamens in five bundles, with yellowish anthers .fruit ia a black berry , flowering ;June -August ,

The actual photo looks exactly like yours , in fact it could be your pic.

Does any of that prove anything ?

Oh dear - I added a photo of the shrub itself and said it wasn't a wild one! My RHS book has it in, but doesn't say one way or t'other.

Thanks, Steve - that explains it all. So it is a native one. I don't mind a bit - it's lovely and it fits where it is well. :-)

Thanks! I leant precariously over the stream wall to take it...and dropped my camera case. Retrieval was not easy!
