If you like cooking Mediterranean food, especially pizza, you need this oregano. It's vital.

From our seed source, Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed: "This is the true Greek culinary species, with white flowers and the full potent flavor we want for pizza and tomato sauces. The flowering stems and seed heads can make a fragrant filler in arrangements. A perfect plant for the most exposed, full sun, arid locations. Good for bees."

Perennial to at least Zone 6, possibly colder.
