Product Overview

Originally from the Mediterranean, this herb variety has become a key ingredient for delicious pasta sauces and other Italian dishes. Plants are easy to care for and grow well in containers. Because they tend to spread and grow low to the ground, they also make a fragrant, unexpected ground cover. Harvest often to keep plants from flowering. Plants do best with low humidity and well-drained soil.
  • Classic oregano flavor that's great for Italian dishes
  • Prefers low humidity
  • Low growing for an excellent ground cover
  • Harvest just before plants flower for the most intense flavor
  • Good drainage is essential
  • Light Requirement: Full sun to part shade
  • Space 12“ to 18“ apart
  • Good for Containers
  • Frost Tolerant
