Poliomintha maderensis Lavender Spiceā„¢

Mexican Oregano

This mounding, brittle, woody perennial has small, bright green leaves with a delicious oregano fragrance. Showy clusters of lavender flowers are produced at the branch tips from spring through summer, and attract hummingbirds. Plant in full or filtered sun, and provide moderate irrigation to increase flower production. A light shearing in late winter is recommended.
