Succulents are easy to grow, attractive and aromatic. Such is the case with Cuban oregano. What is Cuban oregano? It is a succulent in the Lamiaceae family, also known as Spanish thyme, Indian borage, and Mexican mint. It is not a true oregano in the family, Origanum, but has a scent characteristic of the true oreganos. There are numerous culinary and traditional Cuban oregano uses. It has fragrant, velvety leaves edged in white, and trumpet-shaped flowers in pink, white, and lavender. It’s nearly maintenance-free once it is established. It grows rapidly, creating a lush display in a container garden. Cuban oregano bears a strong menthol or camphor scent that intensifies when the leaves are crushed, so use this powerful seasoning carefully. 

Choose a site with well-draining, gritty soil in partial sun for this little plant. It is frost tender but does well in tropical to semi-tropical areas year around. The plant needs regular irrigation but cannot survive consistently wet roots, which makes drainage especially important.
