Origanum

Common Name: Ornamental Oregano

Oregano, otherwise called Majoram, is traditionally used in cooking. But some species are more ornamental and used for their showy foliage and colorful bracts. Both types prefer hot sunny conditions where the climate is dry, and soils are well drained. The foliage is pleasantly fragrant.
