Origanum 'Drops of Jupiter' is an ornamental oregano with pink flowers and aromatic, chartreuse-yellow foliage.
Origanum 'Drops of Jupiter' is a lovely ornamental herb with mauve-pink flowers that arrive later in the summer on upright stems atop chartreuse-yellow foliage. Purple calyxes, that hold the flowers, remain after the flowers are spent to extend the show. The leaves are edible but with less intense flavour than culinary oregano. Clumping to 24 inches high and 36 inches wide. Great as a border plant, in the rock garden, and containers. Attracts pollinators. Deer resistant.
