Oregano – Cleopatra
Origanum vulgare 'Cleopatra'

Zone: 4-8
Height: 12"

General: Mildly spicy flavor perfect in Mediterranean dishes, soups and sauces. Attractive silver-gray foliage. Use fresh, dried, or fresh frozen.

Culinary Uses: The main difference between Cleopatra and the more classic Greek and Italian oreganos is the mild, spicy flavor tinged with a peppermint coolness. It is a perfectly tuned counterpoint to roasted veggies and savory meat dishes. It adds an interesting accent to Mediterranean dishes, soups and sauces: meat and fish dishes, roasted or grilled vegetables and adds a new piquancy to spicy foods.

Ornamental Uses: This variety of oregano has a compact creeping habit and lovely silvery-gray foliage. Fantastic in containers, as a ground cover, or as an addition to the border.
