I planted this variety of oregano 2 years ago. Year one: it looked terrible and I regretted planting it. Year two: it looked much better and when I decided to help stand it up with stakes I decided I really like it. The pink/purple with green is a nice color addition. It smells delicious and bees in the area have a love affair with it all summer and late into the fall. Now that it has matured and looks better I will try to divide and plant it in additional areas.
