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 sharp-draining soil.
While quite dainty, Elizabeth Strangman’s lovely hybrid actually appreciates hot dry conditions. If this isn’t enough to recommend it, ‘Kent Beauty’ produces a plethora of plump rosy bracts—some 2 to 3 in. long—that resemble Hops and are prized by those who love dried arrangements. Rounded and paired, the inch-long, blue-green leaves clasp trailing, thin wine-tinted stems. A natural atop a stone wall, this compact Origanum’s nodding blooms and intriguing foliage make a splendid statement.
Size: 12" high x 12" wide.
