Similar to Hypericum cistifolium but can be distinguished by its leaves which are ovate-lanceolate and well over 1 cm wide, while Hypericum cistifloium has leaves that are linear-oblong and less than 1 cm wide. The Hypericums have punctate or gland dotted leaves that are opaque if held up to the light. Leaves without an articulation at the base. Leaves not linear.
Seed germination is improved by cold/moist stratification (Steffen 1997).
Found typically in sandy soils, in woods, swamps and prairies or Louisiana and east Texas.
