Wild Flowers of Sleepy Hollow Lake
- St. Johnswort, Common (Hypericum perforatum) -

(St. Johnswort - 04)  In this bee's eye view we can clearly see the three styles of the pistil growing from the ovary (lower left of photo).  In the upper right of the photo, we get a good look at the black dots along the edge of the petal.  The literature didn't identify the composition of these black dots; but the black dots on the leaves contain oil, which we suspect these do, too.  The oil was extracted for healing wounds and skin irritations. The flowers and seeds were boiled into a tea to help heal urinary problems.
