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.
