- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
Lippia graveolens, also called Mexican oregano, is a distant annual relative of Greek oregano native to Central America and the American Southwest. Grows to a taller height than most common oregano varieties, but with a similar, lemony oregano flavor, Mexican oregano also produces yellow-white flowers throughout the spring and summer that are beneficial to pollinators.
Mexicano oregano is a must-have for Mexican and TexMex recipes like chili, salsa, and braised meats and can be used fresh or dried.
Mature plants can reach a height of up to 4' tall and wide, spreading to resemble a small shrub over time.
Plants are a bit sensitive to frost, but do well in heat, and will be available in 4" pots beginning the week of 4/15.
