This beautiful ornamental herb will brighten up your landscape! When planted in full sun, the leaves of 'Drops of Jupiter' are chartreuse yellow. Later in the summer, mauve pink flowers are held on purple calyxes. The calyxes hold after the flowers are spent and extend the attractiveness late into fall. Although it's related to the oregano commonly used in cooking, this herb is meant to show off in the garden, similar to the ornamental onion Allium 'Serendipity'. Its leaves are edible, but will not have as intense of a flavor as its cousins.
