small leaved oregano

Native to Crete, this sweet little oregano is a useful addition to the front of a border, rock garden or container planting.  Tiny aromatic leaves form a low, small scale ground cover.  The flowers are held on slender, wiry stems 10 inches to a foot above the fragrant foliage and are made up of tiny pink blossoms nestled in small papery bracts. Plant in full sun to light shade with moderate to a little summer water. Shear after flowering for best ground hugging appearance.  Looking deceptively delicate, this sturdy perennial is eye catching, attractive to bees and deer resistant.

Sorry; this plant is out of stock at present.
