Hypericum pseudohenryi N.Robson

Verified by: Temperate sect. 17 August 2009
Notes: Verified with Flora of China online (www.eFloras.org). Shrub. Leaves very shortly petiolate with transparent dots, margin sligthly undulate. Leaf blade broader below middle with rounded apex. Venation reticulate not conspicuous abaxially. Leaves paler green abaxially, secondary veins joining. Stem reddish terete or with 4 lines. Flowers to 4cm in diameter, styles free 5 shorter or equaling the ovary, stamens in 5 bundles. Calyx with broad triangular sepals. Stamens almost as long as the petals. Species of Hypericum are in need of a new revision, too many species have been described recently and don t really differ morphologically.
