Comparisons of Common St. John’s-Wort with other the native species
Grasp the base of the Common St. John’s Wort stems as low as you can get (where it transitions to the root crown at soil level) and pull slowly as to allow one to get as much of the roots as possible. If one pulls too fast, or if only one of the stems of a multi-stem plant is pulled, the stem(s) is more likely to break off from the root.
