About This Plant
Sun/part shade; semi-evergreen. A perennial shrub well suited for deeper well-drained soils. Mexican oregano grows fairly large; use it more or less like a rose bush in the middle layer of a xeriscape bed. Blooms appear from late spring through summer.
The edible foliage is strongly aromatic, and deer tend to avoid it.
Cut back (by as much as half its height) as needed during summer. Mexican oregano can be damaged by drastic freezes but it’ll leaf out again in spring.
