Annual Oregano: What is It?
Answered by: Conrad Richter

Posted on: March 3, 1999

The past two years we have purchased oregano plants (annuals) in a nursery in Toronto. They are not the Greek Oregano (perennial). They have a stronger taste and smell. At first glance I was sure they were Rosemary as the leaves were similar to Rosemary, but they were in fact Oregano (at least the same fragrance). Do you know what kind this would be, and if so do you sell these plants and/or seeds. We have enjoyed your catalogue over the years and our many visits to your greenhouses. It is nice to get your tips and Q & A over the internet.

We have seen summer savory being sold labelled as "oregano" in Toronto. It is an annual. Could it be that?
