The Greek Oregano infatuates not only during blossoming with its intense peppery flavour. The haircoat on the leaf surface that protects the leaves from drying out, is a clear sign of a dry and hot climate of the natural habitat of the plant. The hairy leaves count also for the light silvery-grey shine of the plant. Other than most species that develop pink blossoms, the Greek Oregano blooms with a white colouring. With a growth height between 30 and 70 cm, it can easily be cultivated in a tub, flower box or outdoors, while it is even in the northern hemisphere quite frost-hard. You can harvest Oregano throughout the year. The Greek Oregano is well suited for pizzas and meat dishes, and is commonly used in the Mediterranean kitchen. Even the almost wilted flowers have a superb taste. Of all Oregano varieties, the Greek Oregano has the most intense aroma and taste that doesn't even fade away during cooking.
Natural Location: The natural habitat of the Greek Oregano extends through Macedonia, Greece, Cypress and Turkey.
Place: Like in its natural habitat, the Greek Oregano prefers a warm and full sunny place to spread its intense fragrance.
Care: A dry and nutritious soil without waterlogging would be ideal for cultivation. For potted plants you can also use a quality mix of herbal earth. Water the plant sparsely and avoid waterlogging.
During Winter: Late autumn is the best time for pruning back your plant. Basically, the Greek Oregano is even in northern regions frost-hard, but to be on the saver side, it is advisable to frost-protect the roots of your outdoor plant with a layer of foliage or mulch.
Bonsai ability: No
