One of several ornamental Oreganos now becoming available in North America. This selection features clusters of soft mauve flowers in midsummer, over a low mound of golden-yellow foliage. Plants are great for edging, or in tubs and mixed containers. Since this is a form of Common Oregano, the leaves are fragrant and may be used in cooking. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Clip plants back hard in June to maintain a low, creeping habit. Drought tolerant, once established. Attractive to butterflies. Evergreen in mild winter regions.
