The golden splashed foliage gives this Oregano extra garden and garnish options. The gold tips look at their very best during the late spring and it is a favourite with bees and butterflies when in flower. Cut the old stems back at the start of spring. It can still be used in all the usual Oregano roles of stews, soups, pizza and pasta.
