As you can see from the Latin, this is a Middle Eastern herb, an oregano that carries a bit of zing and a necessary ingredient in the condiment zaatar. Mix with sumac, toasted sesame seeds, salt and sometimes a few other herbs, to make the sprightly topping so essential to Arabic cuisine. Bushy tender perennial, hardy to Zone 10, grown as an annual in colder climes. For best, most aromatic flavor, harvest before its small white flowers appear. It thrives in sun on poor well-drained non-acidic ground.
