Origanum ‘Kent Beauty’ x O. rotundifolium seedlings

This bushy, trailing perennial produces wiry stems bearing small, oval, blue-green leaves that are quite attractive in their own right but it is for the flowers that these plants are prized. They resemble those of hops, dense bundles or whorls of pink bracts (petal-like leaves) that, together with the true leaves, offer a gorgeous effect. These beautiful cascading perennials hold their presence for many months in summer and are most successful as dry garden subjects but they need sharp drainage and a little care when establishing.
