$6.99

Vegetative propagated cultivar with dense and groundcovering growth. Ornamental and edible culinary plant, pollinator friendly.

Forms wide mats, only about 5-6'' tall x 1.5-2' wide (in time). Flowers in June-July with tiny pale pink flowers.

Full sun, half sun, half shade, average soils, average moisture (medium) to medium-dry or dry. Adaptable to soil types, but best in drier soils or drained soils.

Hardy in zones 5-8.

It grows fairly well in our hot and humid climate in south central Indiana, but it may do even better in cooler areas or areas with less humidity.

Aromatic leaves deter rabbits and deer and can be used as culinary plant (Mediterranean cuisine) or for teas and tea mixtures.

Attracts butterflies and honeybees.

Origanum vulgare is native from Europe to Western Asia.

Best in sunny or half shade flower beds, for the front as edging plants - combined with plants like Achillea millefolium, Agastache, Asclepias (tuberosa, verticillata), Aster (A. leavis, A. oblongifolius, A. novae-angliae), Calamintha, Gaura, Geranium sanquineum, Eryngium, Echinacea, bearded Iris, Liatris, Monarda (M. fistulosa, M. punctata), Nepeta, Penstemon, Perovskia, Ruellia humillis, Salvia nemorosa hybrids, Sedum, Stachys, Stokesia, Solidago and medium sized grasses like Sporobolus, Muhlenbergia, Eragrostis or Bouteloa. Can be used in rock gardens.
