Origanum 'Rosenkuppel'

oregano 'Rosenkuppel'

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit Perfect for pollinators
9cm pot £7.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: tolerates most freely draining soils
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Slender stems are clothed in aromatic, purple-flushed foliage and terminate in clusters of tubular purple flowers with reddish-purple bracts in summer. A compact perennial, it looks wonderful softening the edges of a path. Sadly though this oregano is not an edible form.

  • Garden care: Cut back old flowered stems in spring.
