PEELBARK ST. JOHN'S-WORT
A common St. John's-wort of wet flatwoods, pond and swamp margins and bogs throughout nearly all of Florida. The range includes the southeastern coastal states from Louisiana to North Carolina.
Sandweed is an erect evergreen shrub from 1.5 - 2 meters (5 - 6-1/2 ft.) tall, sometimes a little more. Single-stemmed, branching at the top and sometimes with prop roots at the base. The bark of the older stems is thin and relatively tight, exfoliating in thin chips and flakes. Yellow flowers appear from spring into fall with five petals and sepals and many stamens. Petals are 6-9 mm (1/4 - 3/8 in.) long. Leaves are opposite, simple, linear, revolute, white dotted from 1.3 to 2.6 cm (1/2 - 1 in.) long. Axils of main leaves also have branchlets containing facicles of leaves.
