Ornamental oregano makes a sprawling clump that is full of pinkish lavender flowers all summer. The butterflies love it and the flowers are nice in bouquets. Its leaves don't have a strong enough flavor to use in cooking, but the plants is nicely fragrant. The flowers dry well and the plant is drought tolerant. It works pretty well in containers too. It's a very versatile, easy-to-please plant that fits in well in many places.
