Oregano Kent Beauty

garden kent beauty oregano oregano kent beauty perennials

If you haven't heard of Oregano Kent Beauty, it wouldn't surprise me.  Oregano Kent Beauty is one of those must have perennials who, unfortunately, does not get a lot of press.  In the gardening world, it is not in the "in crowd".  The "in crowd" being a group of plants that gets more media attention than others and the plants get a lot of money thrown into the marketing of them. 

Well, Oregano Kent Beauty is definitely a perennial worth mentioning. It is a stellar garden performer.  It also does very well in a container and with it growing to about 8-12 inches it won't take over the container.  The foliage and flowers are airy in free-forming so its great to add in combination with other plants. 

Oregano Kent Beauty has absolutely gorgeous flowers.  The blooms look like a string of delicate cupped flowers nested inside one another.  When Kent Beauty first starts blooming the flowers are light in color, maturing to a pink, dusty mauve color.  The flowers are very long lasting as well.  Plants will start blooming early summer and will continue until fall.  Give your plant foliage a light trim early in the season (mid spring) to create a bushier plant and give you more blooms, just remember it will delay flowering a little.

This does best in full sun but can handle part shade.  Do not overwater Oregano Kent Beauty, it could lead to some root rot.  So make sure to plant in a well drained area. 

Give it a try here... Oregano Kent Beauty
