Rating for this plant:
this is the good culinary oregano, very spicy, and does not spread out into a weed. White flower. Taste the leaf before buying to make sure that it is very spicy

I like this opinion

Smells so good... Taste better. But mines not spicy. Didn't know they are supposed to be. Sorry still learning. But I love to cook with it!
