Abstract
Hypericum L. is the genus of flowering plants in the family Hypericaceae. The genus comprises almost 500 species of small shrubs and herbs, which has a worldwide distribution, with representatives in nearly every continent, being only absent from the poles, deserts and low-altitude tropical areas. Nowadays the largest diversity in the genus is found in the Eurasia and North America, but it is also abundant in high-altitude tropical areas of the Southern Hemisphere. Species of Hypericum do not grow the habitats that are extremely hot, cold or dry. Species of this genus grow on damp soils, meadows, swamps and even just in small water, at the region of lakes and the rivers (Hypericum eloides L.). Species meet in the foothill sand high lands, coming in to the Alpine belt.
