Origanum “Kent Beauty” is grown best in full sun hops-like bracts, however the plants will also grow in part sun. Use a soil with good drainage (we grow this plant in hanging baskets) oregano care must have regular watering for moist soil however do not keep plants soggy wet.
Ornamental oregano can be perennial (zone 5) if planted in the ground with mulch or take your hanging basket indoors when freezes are expected. Summer through fall drooping flower heads of pink, green and cream will develop. Stunning addition to your patio if you are willing to try something different.
