Also know as Marjoram Gold Shine. It is an extremely aromatic herb that look their best in Spring. The pungent flavour features heavily in Mediterannean and Mexican food, as it has a great affinity for a variety of foods, especially strong flavours like wine, olives and tomatoes, vegetables, stuffings and egg dishes.
Native to the Mediterannean and Southern Europe, Oregano is closely related to marjoram, and is also characteristic of many Greek dishes (particularly lamb). Oregano's flavour is enhanced with drying and is oftne sprinkled liberally on pizzas.
Gold Shine has golden coloured leaves and produces small pink flowers. It prefers a sunny site and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters, but its hardy nature means can remain evergreen through the winter months.
