Oregano 'Hot 'n Spicy' or Origanum vulgare 'Hot 'n Spicy' is an extremely aromatic herb, with a very hot spicy flavour. You have been warned!

This green herb, whose 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 often sprinkled liberally on pizzas.

Growing 45-60cm tall and preferring light well-drained soil, Oregano 'Hot 'n Spicy' prefers a sunny site and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters, but its hardy nature means it can remain evergreen through the winter months. The bright green oval leaves grow profusely on short purple/brown stems, and a very pretty show of purple-pink flowers appears in the summer (some varieties can have a white flower.)
