Origanum vulgare hirtum
One of the most hard working and useful perennial filler plants that we grow each summer. Glowing green stems are topped with fragrant, airy white blossoms that leave behind fluffy green seed heads that are an amazing addition to any arrangement. Greek oregano is a must grow for market bouquets. Fragrant, edible plants are also well-loved by pollinators. If seed is sown early enough, this perennial will flower the first year from seed.
