St John's Wort plant is a short, woody shrub that grows about 24 inches tall and has fragrant yellow flowers from mid to late summer. Hypericum St John's Wort was apparently named after John the Baptist, and historically has been used to ward off evil spirits and witches.

As an herb plant, the oil in the leaves has been used topically for wounds, sunburns, and general aches and pains.
