Creeping Saint John’s Wort

Also known as St. Andrew's Cross.  A low-growing, evergreen shrub with opposite leaves on woody stems and bright yellow flowers. The flowers have four irregularly spaced petals arranged in an 'X' shape rather than a perpendicular cross, and a mass of numerous extended yellow stamens is at the center of the bloom.   The bark is a cinnamon reddish-brown color which contrasts nicely with the blue-green hue of the leaves. Flowers can bloom for most of the year.
