Lovely Filler for Bouquets
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.

With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!
