Hypericum perforatum, known as St John’s wort, is a flowering plant in the family Hypericaceae.   The common name “St John’s wort” comes from its traditional flowering and harvesting on St John’s Day, 24 June. The genus name Hypericum is derived from the Greek words hyper (above) and eikon (picture), in reference to the tradition of hanging plants over religious icons in the home during St John’s Day, to ward off evil.
