Poliomintha longiflora
Mexican Oregano

Poliomintha longiflora - Mexican Oregano


Mexican Oregano is a semi-woody shrub used for culinary purposes in Mexican and Southwestern cuisine, adding a spicy flavor not found with regular Oregano.  It will grow to a 24-36” in height with a nice mounding shape, spreading 18-24”.  In most areas it will be evergreen during the winter, however, it could loose it’s leaves during cold stress.  Poliomintha longiflora will be covered with tubular lavender flowers all summer and like most herbs it likes to be cut back, which will keep the flowers coming.  Mexican Oregano will flourish in the humid gulf coast areas making it a good landscape plant, and likes a little more moisture than most herbs.
