A fun, unique variety to try in the landscape. Flower clusters hang from wiry stems, and have pale green and blush bracts with tiny rose-pink flowers peeking out from in between. The attractive plant has fragrant foliage and looks great in raised beds, window boxes, or other containers. Hopflower oregano is one of our most asked about plants--when people see it, they are charmed!
