Size chart

The Oreganum genus contains many perennial herbs and subshrubs that are native to western Asia and the Mediterranean region, though some have naturalized in North America. The most common species are familiar culinary herbs, including Origanum vulgare and Origanum majorana. Oregano leaves are generally oval, dark green, and positioned in opposite pairs along the stems. Some varieties have fuzzy leaves.

Oregano starts as a ground-hugging rosette of leaves, but it can easily grow to about 2 feet tall. It's generally planted in the spring and grows quickly, providing leaves suitable for cooking almost immediately. Note that oregano is toxic to pets, so be mindful of where you plant it.

Native to Europe, Asia and Mediterranean

Plant oregano in the spring after the threat of frost has passed. The outdoor soil temperature should ideally be around 70 degrees Fahrenheit for planting. Oregano is one of those Mediterranean herbs that grow well in full sun and lean-to-average soil that's well-drained. Rich soil can dilute the pungency of the herb. So oregano is a good choice for those sunny areas of your garden with poor soil that isn't suitable for many other plants.

Oregano is well-suited to growing in pots and a good choice for a windowsill herb garden indoors. Containers generally dry out faster than garden soil, so this can help to create the fairly dry environment that oregano likes. Just make sure the container you select has adequate drainage holes. Unglazed clay is an ideal material because it will allow excess soil moisture to evaporate through its walls as well. A container that’s around 10 to 14 inches across and 6 to 8 inches deep should suffice.
