origanum dictamnus

One of the last plants that I rushed to transplant from the old garden is Origanum dictamnus, Dittany of Crete. Yes, that dittany, of which Hermione used essence of dittany to heal Ron's injuries in The Deathly Hallows.

It's still a tiny plant, but at least it survived and produced quite a long season of blooms in the usual oregano style of layered bracts. I may change my nickname of this plant to "Rattlesnake Plant".
