Tenerife has its own species of St John's Wort
St John's Wort has been hailed by many people as a natural version of Prozac because of its antidepressant properties. Tenerife has its own endemic species of Canary Island St John's Wort (Hypericum canariense).
Like other species of St John's Wort it has golden yellow starry flowers and is a very pretty wild flower besides having uses in herbal medicine. Canary Island St John's Wort is known as "Granadilla" or "Granadillo" in Spanish, or as "Sanjuanero" or "Malfurada".
