Mexican Oregano

Love these. I let one go to flower and its beautiful. It puts out dainty pink-lavender tubular flowers. It is a magnet for hummers and bees. I had to buy more for culinary use. Tucked these into several pots on deck. 'Very taken with this plant.

Best oregano plants on earth

I've been sprinkling fresh oregano straight out of the garden on almost everything. Can't wait to dry some for my oregano used during the winter. GO GROWJOW!

Mexican Oregano

I was worried about getting plants online and would they survive. I got the plants and immediately planted and watered them. They have taken nicely and are beginning to flower.

Mexican Oregano Herb Plant

I used this Mexican Oregano in my chicken dishes because it was mild, and added just the right amount of great aroma and taste. Yum! Thank You, GrowJoy for this delicious little herb! Nancy Gebhardt
