well--I'm not so sure. It is definitely evergreen and about 6 ft tall. The flowers look like it but not the plant.

My first thought was also St. John's Wort https://wortsnall.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/sjw.jpg

However yours has even more stamen than in my photoabove. But it is probably in that genus at least.

But remember that it has photosynsetizing properrties. I personally would not use it as an herb.

"A popular cultivar with slightly larger flowers on a more compact plant than the species. Foliage is evergreen to semi-evergreen in the southern part of its growing range. Use in hedges, shrub borders, foundation plantings, or en masse."

Well this may be my answer cause I'm in N.C. and it definitely is evergreen and is large enough to be a hedge or shrub. I have the ground cover St. John's Wort and never would have guessed it is the same family. Thanks.
