I just love this Oregano. In the garden it behaves very well, it does not seed around that much and it stays at its place where I planted it for many years ago. For culinary use I use other and stronger tasting Oregano, but it could be useful for that also. At the start of the season it emerges with striking golden foliage, turning more green in time. It flowers for weeks and weeks, it only stops flowering when the season is nearly over. It makes bees and butterflies very happy.
