Native to the woods and mountains of Shikoku and Kyushu, Japan, this perennial has broad and opposite Maple-like leaves that emerge in late spring and later highlight the pendulous, waxy yellow flowers and glossy green calyxes. A lover of moist, leafy soil, Yellow Waxbells work well in the woodland garden with Asarum caudatum and Rodgersia.

Blooms September–October.

Zak's pick is Origanum 'Bristol Cross' (P-1277)

The Greeks called this ancient herb oros ganos, meaning “joy of the mountain,” and legend has it that Aphrodite created the sweet, spicy scent of its leaves as a symbol of happiness. A sun-loving genus hailing from the Mediterranean, Origanums display small, tubular, whorled flowers often arranged in showy overlapping bracts, and prefer well drained soil.

"It's one of my favorite low-growing Origanums. It's perfect for edging a pathway and the profuse spires of lavender pink never fail to draw my eyes, …..and the bees!" -Zak
