It is a gift that keeps giving.  The herb with one hundred names.  Oregano on steroids.  My friend simply introduced it as cuban oregano when he handed me the little pot several years ago.

It is a hardy succulent that smells wonderful when you rake your finger gently across a leaf.  And even if you aren’t gentle, and a piece falls to the soil, no problem.  It roots quite easily.  From my one pot, I now have several pots of oregano.  Please keep in mind that some of these “pots” are the size of demitasse cups but … they are still wonderful, edible, bits of green to tuck in sunlit places.

P.S. You can view some green images in this previous post.  😉
