HypericumEdit

The genus Hypericum is organized here into sections as treated by Robson (2016).[1] The name Hypericum was derived from the Greek hyper (above) and eikon (picture), possibly indicating that the flowers of these plants were hung above pictures or windows.
Hypericum sect. BrathysEdit
Robson describes this group as an "informal sect. group." It combines the New York Hypericum species which were previously placed in sections Brathys and Trigynobrathys.
