The Art of Interior Design by Suzanne Woloszynska,

Time Life Garden Makeovers

Happy to do two plants for two books also.

St. Johns Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is a weed here in the Pacific NW (I am constantly pulling it here in my Portland garden). You should be able to find it easily if you just take a walk. The defining quality of the plant is the leaves that when held up to light look as though someone has put pinholes in them (perforated them). The stems this time of year are reddish and there may still be some blooms showing. Be aware that this plant can become invasive.
