Golden Oregano - Origanum vulgare 'Aureum' An attractive groundcover with wrinkly yellow or yellow-green leaves clumps to three or five inches tall. Summer flowers are pink on twelve-inch stems, most numerous in August. As an ornamental it is a first-rate edging plant. As a culinary herb it has a mild pleasant flavor either fresh for salads, cooked in soups or cassaroles or stir-fry, or dried & crumbled for use out of season. Easily propagated from cuttings or by division, it wants well-drained moderately fertile soil in full sun & not too droughty. It's cold-hardy at minus 20 to minus 10 degrees F. It also makes a great house plant in a sunny window. Oregano is one of the most important culinary herbs to come out of the Mediterranean region. A spice-rack arsenal with nothing but oregano & basil could well be sufficient to make any cook seem a genius. It is a true healthfood rich in antioxidants, the plant's essential oils having antimicrobial & antifungal components, besides simply looking good & tasting good.
