Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum 'Hot and Spicy' is an oregano selection for gardeners who love to cook. The small, round, dark grey-green, hairy, evergreen foliage adorns the 2' tall x 3' wide patch. In July and August, the clumps are topped with 2' tall spikes of light lavender flowers. Origanum 'Hot and Spicy' is particularly good for ethnic dishes that call for a strong oregano. Keep in mind that the foliage has the strongest flavor prior to flowering.
