Perhaps our favorite ornamental oregano, with sprays of hop-like flowers and bracts that are blushed pinkish purple, from summer through fall and that cascade down hanging baskets or over walls. Loves sun and excellent drainage. Fairly drought tolerant in summer. Frost hardy to -20 °F, USDA zone 5, if given proper drainage.

Grown for its ornamental flowers and foliage, 'Kent Beauty' is an intriguing little oregano. The pendulous pink and white flowerheads are comprised of multiple bracts from which small, pink, shrimp-like flowers peak. The foliage is a similar shape to the flower bracts and is bluish green. Easy to grow in average to dry, well-drained soils in full sun. Superior winter drainage is the key to growing this plant well. Drought tolerant. Plant in borders, rock walls, hanging baskets or containers.

Ornamental Oregano. Grey-green rounded leaves on wiry stems that sprawl and are topped with showy pale green bracts, accented by tiny pink flowers. Although hardy in a well drained spot in zone 6, we think this makes a delightful container plant!
