Greek oregano is true oregano and is desired for its strong aroma and spicy intense flavor. Oregano is a staple in Italian, Greek, and Mexican cooking. The flavor stands up to bold flavors like tomatoes, onion, garlic, and beef.
Greek oregano is a drought tolerant, bushy perennial with bright, deep purple-brown stems and 1 1/2" leaves that often have a red flush. Branched clusters of purple-pink flowers will appear all summer. When mature, oregano will reach 18" tall and wide.
Seeds can be started indoors.
Sow seeds after the last frost date. Plant 1/4" deep and then thin them to 6" apart. Water and trim often to delay blooming. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days.
Plant in a sunny location with well-draining soil. Water seeds frequently and keep moist until they germinate. As the plants become established they do well in slightly drier conditions.
