O. rotundifolium 'Kirigami' forms mounds of aromatic, light green foliage and purple, pink, and green, hops-like inflorescences.
Origanum 'Kirigami' is an ornamental hybrid oregano forming tightly-branching mounds of aromatic, light green foliage topped from late spring through summer with appealing hops-like clusters of purple, pink and green bracts from which emerge small, tubular, shrimp-like, lavender-pink flowers. Has a denser, more mounding habit and may be more floriferous than 'Kent Beauty' and 'Amethyst Falls'. Use in hot, sunny situations in dry gardens, walls, hanging baskets and containers. Bright light and cool temperatures deepen the colouration.
