One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Hypericum longistylum: these flowers, and there are 100s, are well over 1" across!
You can't miss these plants overhanging the path near the bottom of China Valley; there are hundreds and hundreds of flowers on shrubs ~4' high and spreading. The erect buds, like seried candles, are nice too on yet another attractive, interesting, relatively unknown Chinese Plant.
