Round Leaf Mint Bush / Native oregano

Prostanthera rotundifolia

Native oregano is a native substitute for common oregano and is less sweet with an earthier tone.  The leaves can be used fresh or dried.  It prefers part shade but can cope with some full sun and tolerates light frost.  Enjoy dark green foliage all year with a pink flower through September and October.  Great for pots or to fill in gaps in your garden.  Traditionally this has been used to treat headaches and colds.  Pruning will promote bushier growth.  Attracts lizards, bees and insects.
