Origanum 'Bellissimo' is a gorgeous ornamental oregano with cascades of large, hop-like, glowing pink flowers. A true beauty.

Grows 6-8 inches tall by 18-24 inches wide. Easy to grow in average to dry, well-drained soils in full sun. Superior winter drainage is the key to overwintering success. Drought tolerant.
