Dittany of Crete, a cousin in the Oregano family, is a rare and beautiful medicinal herb. Thought to be a symbol of love because of its beauty and aroma, lovers used to scale dangerous cliff sides to retrieve this lovely herb!
Origanum majoricum A delicious culinary herb that is essential to your Italian dishes. If you are herb gardening for flavor, include Italian Oregano in the herb plants you grow. Italian Oregano is an excellent variety with a strong spicy flavor used in Italian cooking.

Feta Yogurt Dip with Za'atar © Jeanette's Healthy Living
Za'atar: I love Za'atar which comes in many versions -- have bought Syrian, Lebanese, Moroccan, etc. They are all a bit different. This is a good one and you can make adjustments according to your taste. I sprinkle it on roasted cauliflower, roast chicken, carrot soup, grilled fish
Ornamental beauty Some ornamental oreganos have flowers similar to the culinary varieties, but my favorites have tiny pink or purple florets peeking out of prominent papery bracts that cascade over rocks in the garden and jiggle like chandeliers on branched stems in a vase.Most of the ornamental oreganos with flower bracts have blue-green foliage, and some are fragrant or aromatic.
I can see this with some trailing oregano or other herb and an Arp rosemary.
