This photo was taken 2-3 weeks ago, which was November 17. This shrub bloomed spring/summer and i was surprised to see just these two flowers last month. I didn’t cut it back, as i did with the roses, which are waning just now. I don’t think there was any fragrance. The plant is around 3 or so feet high and a foot or more wide. thanks.
your shrub is one of the St. John’s-wort species, genus Hypericum. I would tend to call yours Hypericum ‘Hidcote’, a hybrid cultivar, but it also could be Hypericum calycinum, a native of Europe and Asia. Still another possibility, but not as likely, is Hypericum frondosum, a native shrub that usually grows in limestone glades. These are all quite showy, and tend to produce many flowers in full sunlight.
