Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Stunning plum colored blooms adorn this new, ground hugging ornamental oregano from mid-summer to early fall, making an eye-catching combination on the porch, patio or in the garden. From our partners at PMA in Australia, this drought tolerant plant is perfect for the driest spots in your garden, requiring little water once you establish a good planting. Let it spill over rock walls or be the focal point of your mixed border in a tall, decorative pot. Whichever use you chose, you will not be disappointed in its colorful display and ground hugging ability.
