Info

For a dry well drained hillside or a container there is probably no prettier ornamental Oregano. Fur covered leaves that are almost succulent have a distinct gray quality. In summer and into fall flowers are borne from bright madder red bracts. Each flower is bright purple. Very nice. Full sun (hot sun) and well drained soil with occasional summer water. To 10" tall and as wide. Combines well in a container with Echeveria x imbricata.
