i dunno what it is or where it came from...although i used to be mad into taking cuttings from nice shrubs and such that i took a fancy to (whilst out walking the dogs) so it could quite possibly be one of those that i lost track off. whatever it is its lovely with yellow flowers followed by quite distinctive berries. these pics were taken around august i think? it's a bit bare looking now but does still have some leaves. any ideas what it might be?

as greengage says.
in the last few years i have noticed an increase in the amount of these that self seed around the place.my guess is that the birds eat the berries and then the seeds are distributed in their droppings

Beautiful plant honeybunny.
People pay good money for a lot less pretty or hardy plants in garden centres.

ah thanks guys, great to finally have a name for it Very Happy ...i'm a bit annoyed with myself though, i actually have another Hypericum in the garden ye'see *facepalm* Rolling Eyes but in my defence the two are not all that similar, the one in the pics above has large leaves and multiple small flowers clustered together where as the one i knew was a Hypericum has large (usually single) flowers and small leaves...and, and i never have berries on that one as i've always dead headed....does any of these points make me look less thick? no? damn! Rolling Eyes

thanks James Very Happy i used to love taking cuttings from this that and everything whilst i'd be out and about with the dogs. nothing more rewarding than coming home on a nice sunny day with three knackered dogs and a pocket full of cuttings LOL role on the summer Very Happy

I did a little more research on this and believe you have Hypericum androsaemum also known as Tutsan and believed to be native check out here for more info and it can be confused with other garden Hypericums so dont be annoyed.
