Hopflower Oregano (flower of the month)

Hopflower Oregano (Origanum libanoticum) is an ornamental herb. It's flowers are pale green and look like little paper lanterns hanging on their stem strings. A very unique look indeed. They are pretty trailing over the edges of flower beds, hanging in baskets, cut in bouquets, and even dried!

They are perennial plants that do a terrific job of attracting pollinators such as hummingbirds and butterflies. They bloom mid summer and last all the way until fall. Once established they are drought tolerant and prosper in the Colorado native soil and heat. Sun is preferred, but they will do just fine in partial sun.
