(aka: Origanum 'Lizzie's Hybrid #2') Origanum 'Lizzie' originated as a garden seedling at California's Calflora Nursery where it was discovered by their propagator, Liz Fial. Origanum 'Lizzie' was one of six original selections...this one appears to be a hybrid of Origanum laevigatum and the culinary Origanum vulgare. Whatever the parentage, Origanum 'Lizzie' is an amazingly vigorous plant with culinary quality fragrant foliage. Our 15" tall x 6' wide patch (2 years) starts flowering in mid-June (NC) with lovely terminal sprays of mauvy lavender. As each floral show ends and before the next one begins, the old flower heads look like a convention of Rastafarians. When flowering, Origanum 'Lizzie' is a virtual love fest for all kinds of cool insects, so pull up a chair and become a voyeur!
