It'll be getting a severe chop once it's finished flowering. It escaped it last year! 😁 @butterfingers

Ah I've learned something I think!! But why oh why do shrubs have to have 2 names I wonder?😕When I saw this pic I thought I've got one of those but then it said yours is St Johns Wort. My label says Hypericum....So are St Johns Wort and the latter the same beast?😊😊💛💛

@midnightgardener all plants have a botanical Latin name (Hypericum in this case) & one or more common names, St John's Wort in this instance. Here, on this site, there is little choice usually as to what name is designated, but yes, it can be confusing, especially when there are many common names used for the same plant! 🤔🤔🤔
