Botanical Name:Origanum vulgare
Variegated Oregano is a low growing herb with a mounding habit. It is a small plant, reaching about 40-45cm high and approximately 20-25cm wide. The creamy white flowers are small and insignificant but are bee and butterfly attractants.
This plant is sometimes listed as variegated marjoram, which may cause confusion. It is also important not to confuse 0. vulgare – variegated with Variegated Cuban Oregano which is actually a different species.
There are many different varieties of oregano, each with different characteristics and culinary uses. Oregano also has powerful healing properties including use as a painkiller, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory. Please see our description of Common Oregano and our other Oregano Varieties for more information.
Variegated oregano prefers full sun to part shade and has average soil and water requirements. However, this variety seems to be more heat and cold tender than other varieties. It may be necessary to consider offering some shelter for protection from the heat of summer and very cold winters.
Variegated oregano has a milder flavour than other varieties, but is still a very welcome and flavoursome kitchen herb. The leaves are tender and delicate, so they are also useful for salads and vegetable dishes or salsas. Like all oregano it is possible to chop fresh leaves and place in ice blocks or butter for later use. It is great to eat fresh or dry and store for later use.
