Origanum vulgare ‘Gold Tip’


Ornamental Oregano

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.400.960


One of several ornamental Oreganos now becoming available in North America. This selection features clusters of soft mauve-pink flowers through the summer, over a low mound of green foliage, tipped with bright golden yellow. 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. Clip plants back hard in June to maintain a low, creeping habit. Clumps can be easily divided in early spring. Drought tolerant, once established. Attractive to butterflies.
