Origanum ‘Kent Beauty’


Ornamental Oregano

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.400.800


A very intriguing form of Oregano, this forms a low trailing mound of powdery blue-green foliage. Summer through fall it bears drooping heads of hop-like flowers in a blend of shrimp pink, green and cream. Terrific in containers, even as an annual in colder regions. Ideal for draping over walls or in the sunny rock garden. Prefers excellent drainage. A fantastic British introduction that has been around for many years. May well survive to Zone 5 or colder if soil are exceptionally well drained.
