Origanum can be either herbaceous perennials or deciduous or evergreen subshrubs. Their foliage is fragrant, and they produce small flowers during summer/autumn which are great for pollinators. Origanum originates from open or mountainous areas of Asia, Europe and North Africa. They are best suited to a wildflower, meadow or informal gardening style and are happy tin borders and beds. You should expect to see Origanum grow to an approximate height and spread of up to 1m (3ft).
Origanum are best planted in a well-drained soil of loam, chalk or sand within an acid, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Origanum is best suited for either a sheltered or exposed area in full sun, however they will also cope with partial shade just fine. Can be grown in containers or pots too.
Origanum are a fairly low-maintenance plant so do not require too much care. Cut back old, flowered stems in early spring to keep the plants compact and to top them from becoming leggy. Do not overwater Origanum as the roots may rot if you do this. Water when the soil is dry to the touch.
It is possible to propagate Origanum by seed or division in the autumn or spring.
