(Origanum sp. LAMIACEAE)
A showy form of oregano from our ethnic Russian collection. Like other members of our Russian collection, the flowers have a pleasing range of colors. Plants first form a low growing mat about 3" high, later growing taller and then sending up a large number of flowering stalks (24" tall) with showy pink-lavender flowers and occasional white and lavender flowers. Naturalizes readily. Nice border plant for low borders, and an excellent ground cover that competes well with weeds.
