Species from St. John's-wort Family, Hypericaceae: 4

St. John's-wort Family, Hypericaceae

In Finland the St. John’s-wort family has only one genus (Hypericum), which is comprised of 4 species in Finland, although almost 250 have been recognized worldwide. Genus Hypericum was previously included in the Clusiaceae (also known as Guttiferae) family but it was shaken up by changes and its numbers dropped from 37 genera to 14. No Clusiaceae family representatives were left in Finland when genus Hypericum was given its own family, which also includes other genera – there are a total of 10 genera and over 300 species.
