Our daughter-in-law graces the dining room table and kitchen counters with fresh flowers. This week, on her bimonthly shopping trip to a Trader Joe’s, she brought home a couple of bunches of St John’s Wort. It is a flowering plant in the Hypericaceae family. The individual flowers (?) look like a bulb and it is firm to touch. So far I haven’t seen a bulb open but as it is, they are tiny, decorative and charming to look at.
St John’s Wort is a strange name for a natural supplement, but the extracts from this plant is being advertised on the internet to relieve stress and anxiety. Of course you should not trust everything you read on the internet.
