Hypericum crux-andreae, commonly called St. Peter's-wort, is a small shrub in the St. John's wort family. It is native to Eastern North America, where it is primarily found in the sandy soils of the Coastal Plain with extensions into the Piedmont and Cumberland Plateau.[2]

It is found in wet flatwoods, and generally in wet, open, sandy areas such as bogs or seeps, although it is occasionally found in drier habitats.[1]
