Oregano and Mint Underated Flowering Groundcovers


Part of what makes this garden space and path wonderful is the lavender spikes of  mint that have been flowering abundantly all summer long.  See them at the bottom of the photo. The white flowering  oregano spills onto to fieldstone step (out of view) so that I brush past them and release their fragrance with each descent.  The plants aren’t as splashy as the ligularia blooming orange in the hosta garden beyond, but they definitely frame the scene.  Easy to pull out when the plants travel into areas I don’t want them in, they provide a lovely abundance while the pollinators they attract help our environment.
