  1. I have taken St. John’s Wort in pill form, but did not know what the plant looked like. It is a pretty plant with a very pretty bloom. Thanks for pictures of this plant. Did not know it could grow in shade and poor soil. Very interesting.

  2. The stigma of taking an anti-depressant can be dramatically reduced by seeing the beauty in the plant. If one had this opportunity, they could view this as a product working in harmony with their body to create a better sense of balance. This is a more pleasing and positive approach than taking a “drug” to alter “abnormal” behavior. Thank you for introducing me to this beautiful plant.
