Origanum x hybrid. Non edible oregano. Trailing plant has a tighter and fuller habit than standard vegetative varieties, so it holds better in shipping and on the retail bench. Heat and drought tolerant, with an eye-catching display of texture from Spring until Autumn. Also perfect for hanging baskets, or in borders and rock gardens; can also be dried for use in dried flower arrangements. Higher light and cooler night temperatures accent the purple bract colour. Crop time 10 – 12 weeks.
Ornamental oregano care is similar to care for any Mediterranean herb.
CULTURE: Press seed into the soil surface, do not cover and keep moist until seeds germinate about 3 weeks later. Wait until danger of last spring frost is over before you transplant young plants outdoors.
DIRECT SEED: Sow seed after dandelions bloom (about May 1st in northern areas). Choose a medium rich soil with good drainage and normal moisture in a sunny location.
