Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

Zak's pick is Origanum 'Bristol Cross' (P-1277)

The Greeks called this ancient herb oros ganos, meaning “joy of the mountain,” and legend has it that Aphrodite created the sweet, spicy scent of its leaves as a symbol of happiness. A sun-loving genus hailing from the Mediterranean, Origanums display small, tubular, whorled flowers often arranged in showy overlapping bracts, and prefer well drained soil.

"It's one of my favorite low-growing Origanums. It's perfect for edging a pathway and the profuse spires of lavender pink never fail to draw my eyes, …..and the bees!" -Zak

Digging Dog Nursery is a family-owned nursery and mail-order business situated on the Mendocino Coast in Northern California. Our nursery offers healthy and vigorous plants grown in our own custom potting mix that includes a sterilized sandy loam. We propagate the majority of the plants we sell.

For more than 20 years we have been offering a selection of tried and true garden performers, as well as many unique and easily grown varieties that emphasize long blooming periods, and year-round appeal with an array of buds, blooms, seedheads, berries, intriguing foliage or bark.

In the following pages, you will find a versatile and extraordinary collection—a plethora of plants for formal or informal spaces, as well as naturalized meadows, shady woodland areas, Mediterranean and water-wise gardens, the rockery, and even some market plantings with a focus on fresh or dried arrangements.
