Origanum rotundifolium Kent Beauty

Origanum rotundifolium Kent Beauty is one of the most ornamental of the Oregano's. I have had good success growing Origanum Kent Beauty in moderate to heavy soils and with regular irrigation. Origanum Kent Beauty is hardy with temperatures that dip into the teens. I winter prune Origanum Kent Beauty almost flush to the ground, the plants come up strong in the late winter and bloom from Spring through Fall. A heat wave will sometimes knock Origanum Kent Beauty back a bit. I trim it back and this ornamental oregano starts blooming anew. My plants have gotten about 8-10 inches tall and spread to 2 feet or as far as they can find water. The bed where I am growing Origanum Kent Beauty is edged in a low rock wall. The plants creep around the rocks and make a soft border to the pathway.
