Product Description:

Origanum x hybrida We love ornamental oregano in hanging baskets and mixed containers and are very pleased to offer Kirigami from seed. This cultivar produces exceptionally dense mounds of fragrant, light green foliage tipped with drooping, hop-like flowers. The unusual texture and mix of green flowers that blush to purple/ pink make for stunning displays all summer. Heat and drought tolerant plants reach 8–10 inches tall and spread 12–14 inches. Full sun and cool nights both encourage deeper purple coloration in the blooms. Hardy in zones 5 and above. Germination code: (4)

Epic Fail!

5 seeds in the packet, only 1 seed germinated then dropped died.
What a waste of $$

Sorry to hear that! That is definitely not the norm. We do test every lot of seed we sell and we will not sell it if it doesn't pass our germination standards (which are higher than prescribed by the Federal Seed Act). At Territorial, we stand behind our products with a full guarantee. We are committed to your satisfaction and want you to feel confident in your purchase. If anything you buy from Territorial falls short of your expectations, we will make it right by replacing the item (if available) or providing a refund, whichever you prefer (for up to one year from purchase). Feel free to contact our dedicated customer service at 800-626-0866 team (Monday-Friday 8AM-5PM Pacific Time) or and we will gladly assist you.

Kirigami transplants

These arrived in beautiful condition, perfectly packaged. Looking forward to seeing them develop further.

Little P.
Kirigami Oregano Transplant

I bought three Kirigami transplants in Spring of 2021, they arrived in wonderful condition. Even though in Southern Oregon this year we had an early HOT Spring and Summer they have mostly thrived in a new flower bed. They are so pretty, the little bracts remind me of the graphic of Celtic roses. The colors are greenish gray, spring green and with lovely, tiny rose flowers. One of the plants is having a bit of a rough time even though all three have been planted close to each other. Not sure why but I expect them to get through winter and to look wonderful by next Spring.

Tough to germinate

I have been trying to get these little stinkers to germinate for over six months! Though some have germinated (and a few have since died) I've yet to get a robust plant. I'm going to try putting my tiny little plant outside to see if it is happier and will start to thrive.

Hardiness Zone 5+

Herbs feed the palate and the soul! They add color and contrast to the landscape, perfume our homes, heal our wounds, and tantalize our taste buds. They are easy to grow. Whether in the garden or on the windowsill, learn their likes and dislikes, and you'll be rewarded with flavor and beauty.

Germination Codes
Check the code at the end of the description for specific germination requirements.
(1) Germinates at temperatures between 60-75°F.
(2) Larger seeds need to be covered with soil at least as thick as the seed itself. May be slow and erratic to germinate.
(3) These seeds need a period of cold stratification for successful germination. Best results are obtained when the seeds are kept warm and moist for 2 weeks followed by temperatures of 33-35°F for 4-6 weeks or until germination starts.
(4) No special requirements, but germination may be slow and erratic.

• Fertile, well-drained soil provides the best results• Harvest and fertilize regularly to encourage vegetative growth
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 5 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• For leafy herbs snip off flower buds as they appear

• Start seeds 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date
• Small seeds (thyme, savory, marjoram, oregano) can be gently pressed onto surface of the soil—don't cover or bury seed
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days for optimum growth
• Small seedlings such as thyme, savory and sweet marjoram may be successfully transplanted in small clumps
• Hardy herbs can be transplanted after the last frost
• Transplant tender herbs after last frost when weather has stabilized

Harvest & Storage
• Fresh use: Harvest only as needed
• Drying: Harvest at peak maturity, hang small bunches from ceiling in a dry, warm (80-90°F), dark location with good ventilation for 1-2 weeks
• Distilling: Harvest when blooms are just beginning to appear; at this point the leaves contain the highest level of essential oils
