Details

15" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). Disbelief was my first reaction upon seeing this new oregano in full flower at the Bluebird Nursery display garden. Discovered by Bluebird Nursery owner and prairie plantsman Harlan Hamernik, this hybrid Origanum is nothing short of amazing with its huge sprays containing hundreds of pendulous chartreuse bracts and protruding pink flowers.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Origanum Amethyst Falls:

      My yard is a haven for local honeybees and other pollinators, and this plant is a great addition. It thrived in a scorching hot area of my yard during our hottest summer on record, and did it beautifully. Looking forward to a bigger and better show next year.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Origanum Amethyst Falls:

        I have several in different areas of our yard and they are all flowering--some more than others but that has more to do with placement. Last year I bought several and I cut the flowers and dried them--beautiful. I am so happy with all I have received from High Country Gardens.

        Q & A

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
