    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) http://www.duke.edu/~cwcook/trees/hyst.html Or maybe it’s sibling (Hypericum hypericoides) http://www.sbs.utexas.edu/bio406d/images/pics/clu/hypericum_hypericoides.htm It’s a cool plant, and I’ve always encouraged it.

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