Mounding to trailing fragrant blue-green foliage with whorls of smoky-pink bracts scampers along arching stems ending in perfect rosettes. Smaller, maroon-blushed flowers nestle and peek from within the tips of the hops-like foliage. Origanum Kirigami is a knock-out perennial for rock gardens, border edges, and patio or container plantings. The dusky coloring is accentuated with warmer day-time temperatures and cooler nights. Foliage remains attractive all summer and is a lovely filler for fresh or dried bouquets.
