Origanum vulgare Greek
Greek oregano. A bushy, woody-based perennial growing 45-60 cm high and wide, with dark green leaves and tiny mauve flowers in summer, much loved by bees. Likes a well drained soil and sun or part shade. The leaves are used as a culinary herb – the Greek variety is extra pungent – as is the essential oil from them. Also used medicinally, and for dyes. The plant is supposed to repel ants and other insects. Makes a good ground cover in sunny locations. Grow in any well drained soil in sun or part shade; hardy to -23°C.
