Origanum vulgare
A bushy, woody-based perennial, Origanum vulgare (Oregano) has small ovate leaves that are highly aromatic. Clusters of small white and pink flowers are produced in summer and early autumn making it an attractive low growing bush that is suitable for ground cover in herbaceous borders.

Culinary Uses: As a key part in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, oregano is a versatile herb whose leaves can be used fresh or dried and can be stored for use over winter. It is a signature poultry-stuffing herb and forms one of the key ingredients in pizza and pasta sauce. The fresh leaves can be added to salads or chopped and added to roast meat sandwiches, herb butter, egg dishes and soups. Its aromatic flavour also makes it an excellent addition to pot roast, veal and liver. When adding to cooked meals, add near the end of the cooking period.
