Oregano is a herb that may grow up to 80cm tall. With appealing purple flowers and green leaves, the word oregano is derived from part of the Greek word "oros" meaning mountain and "ganousthai" meaning delight in. This meaning is likely to reflect the understanding that authentic Greek Mountain Oregano favours higher altitudes in the Mediterranean to reach its true potential rather than any flat areas or plains of lower altitudes of other countries.
The ease in which oregano propagates is a reason why this perennial herb has spread and flourished throughout the world. Indeed even in Australia oregano has been known to grow well. It is the wild grown mountain oregano of Greece however, that truly stands out as the authentic Greek Mountain Oregano, having grown wild in those areas for thousands of years.
