    This looks like a member of the Hypericum genus. It could be St. Andrews Cross (Hypericum hypericoides).

    I have a bunch of similar plants, so your question resonated.
    After searching “yellow georgia wildflower identification”, I’ve found a likely candidate.

    St. Andrew’s Cross (Hypericum stragulum)

    Or maybe it’s sibling (Hypericum hypericoides)

    It’s a cool plant, and I’ve always encouraged it.
