A perennial herbaceous plant; a species of the genus St. John's Wort (Hypericum) of the St. John's Wort family (Hypericaceae). A familiar herbaceous plant with yellow flowers. A plant with a thin, strong rhizome, from which several smooth dihedral branched stems grow up to 40-80 cm high every year.
The stem is erect, green in color, then becomes reddish-brown in color; two longitudinal lines stand out on the smooth surface. Secretory receptacles with dark contents are characteristic.
The leaves are opposite, sessile, oblong-ovate or elliptical, up to 3 cm long, up to 1.5 cm wide, whole-edged with numerous light and dark glands (hence the name — perforated).
The inflorescence is an apical raceme-corymbose thyrsus. The flowers are regular, up to 2 cm in diameter, with a double five-membered perianth. The calyx is deeply divided, remains with the fetus, the free parts are lanceolate with rare black glands. The petals are free, golden-yellow, oblong-elliptical, obliquely cut at the top, with glands that are dark along the edge of the leaf, and light on the rest of the surface. The fruit is a triangular multi-seeded box with a mesh surface, opens with flaps.
St. John's wort grows everywhere, in places it forms whole thickets along the edges of coniferous forests, along dry meadows, forest sunny glades. It occurs as a weed along forest roads and on the outskirts of fields.
