Product Overview

Origanum vulgare

Use this mild-flavored oregano in pizza sauce pastas and salsa. Dainty pink blooms add to its beauty.

Often confused with the more pungent, white-flowered True Greek variety, common oregano, also called wild oregano or wild marjoram, has a milder flavor, and is the traditional variety for medicinal use. Leaves can be used as a fresh or dried herb. The pretty pink to lavender flowers appear from midsummer to fall.

Variety Info

½"–¾" oval, dark green, lightly fuzzy leaves. Pink to lavender flowers bloom from midsummer to fall. Stalks become woody with age.

Sowing Inside

RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before your average last frost date. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 70°–78°F.

Sowing Outside

2 to 4 weeks after your average last frost date, when temperatures are warm and settled, and as late as 2 months before your first fall frost date.
