Cuban Oregano – Gallon


A member of the mint family Lamiaceae, Coleus amboinicus grows up to 3 feet tall. They love plenty of sun and their aroma can be described as a pungent combination of oregano, thyme, and turpentine. This attribute makes it a nice addition to gardens as an ornamental plant.

The leaves are indeed edible, but strongly flavored, often used as a substitute for oregano to mask the strong odors and flavors of fish, mutton, and goat. Fresh leaves can add a pleasant scent in laundry and hair care and boiling them with other herbs can result in a historically medicinal home remedy for fever, sore throat, and cold.
