Oregano- Country cream
Origanum Vulgare ‘Cream’
An easy to grow hardy perennial with attractive flowers and delightful green and white foliage that is attractive in the garden and kitchen.
An easy to use herb that enhances other herbs and is an essential part of Italian and Greek cooking. It has a warm peppery flavour that partners well with all meats and most vegetables. Oregano works very well with cooked and raw tomato, cheese and fresh bread. Add young leaves to salads for a bit of splash of colour and flavour.
It is a dry tolerant herb that will suppress weeds and likes full sun and a well drained soil. Prune back in late summer to keep compact, tidy and growing well.
