Oreganum vulgare hirtum

Greek Oregano

Small, quilted, medium green, slightly hairy leaves adorn somewhat woody stems of bushy, spreading plants. Frequent trimming will keep plants from becoming rangy. White flowers in midsummer detract from foliage so keep removed. Lightly sheer as needed. Deliciously scented foliage with excellent flavor. Attractive to pollinators. Deer resistant.
