Origanum vulgare hirtum

Every gardener knows that herb gardening requires a good, solid oregano in the mix. We pride ourselves on our culinary herb plants, and this variety has been a solid choice for years.

Greek Oregano is the true oregano from the mountains of Greece. This culinary herb is very hardy. Considered one of the more flavorful Oreganos, Greek Oregano (like its Italian cousin) is the spice that makes your mouth water for pizza and other great Italian dishes. A wonderful spice for soups, sauces, and marinades. Chop and mix Greek Oregano with garlic, salt and olive oil making a great marinade and use it on poultry or pork. Use fresh leaves on your homemade pizza.

Medicinally, Oregano tea is used to aide in digestion and Oregano oils are used as a cough expectorant as well as to help bring on menstruation.

Greek Oregano is highly aromatic and a bushy, hardy perennial but can fall prey to root rot, aphids and spider mites so make sure to inspect often.

Plant in full sun and make sure that the soil drains well. Oregano does not like "wet feet". The plant has a nice spread and produces dainty white flowers.

Also available in our four inch hand thrown Guy Wolff Greenhouse Pot. The aged finish of these classic terracotta pots will add style to your naturally beautiful plants! Whether it's a "thank you" for the hostess with the “mostest”, or a corporate Christmas gift, these potted herbs make the perfect gift.
