Quick Overview:

Golden oregano is an excellent spreading groundcover for full sun. Bright yellow foliage provides great contrast in the landscape. It is ideal as an herb in containers, or as a fragrant groundcover.

Description

Greek oregano, an herb with a robust scent and flavor, loves to grow in pots where it can spill over an edge of a pot or low wall. However, its trailing growth also makes it a good seasonal ground cover, or it can serve as a nice edging along a path. In late summer, enjoy oregano’s white flowers. Use oregano in an herb garden or in containers.  It performs well in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers neutral to alkaline soils. Thrives in gritty, sandy loams. Superior soil drainage is the key to growing this plant well. Good heat and drought tolerance
