Light green yellow foliage on very hardy groundcover. Mild oregano flavor. Unlike many oregano which prefer full sun golden oregano prefers some afternoon shade - in the heat of the summer it really suffers in full sun. Small white flowers in summer, but the foliage is really the star here. Mix with Salvia involucrata, hardy geraniums, or Gaura 'Passionate Rainbow'.
 
Grows to only 4 inches tall, but 2 feet wide. Can take a bit of foot traffic, so plant between shady stepping stones.
