Italian Oregano (Origanum x majoricum) originates from the Mediterranean and is best in native temps and lower humidity. Use it in your potager garden on the bedding edge. He spreads his stems and roots along the way or can hang over the lip of a container as a spiller. Harvest the leaves to cook into savory dishes. Trim regularly to keep the leaves fresh and avoid getting bitter. The average height is 12-18 inches and spreads like a groundcover.

About Oregano Italian

Italian Oregano is a cross between Oregano vulgare and Origanum majorana, having a mild flavor that blends well with other delicious herbs like Basil and Tarragon. This herb became an instant hit after World War II after soldiers had been introduced to it. It tastes slightly sweeter than 'Greek' Oregano and is a flavor on Italian pizza. Italian Oregano has a sweet smell and tingles on your tongue with a somewhat spicy zing. Consider the herb a hardy perennial in cooler climates if mulched well. He prefers mild Mediterranean-like temperatures and can be grown in container gardens too.
