Botanical Name: Prostanthera Rotundifolia.
Native Oregano (aka. Round-leaf Mint Bush) is a type of native mint, used traditionally as a medicinal herb for treating headaches and colds. These days, it’s more common as a culinary herb and ornamental bush. It grows wild in temperate regions of South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
Perfect for gaps, edges, narrow beds near side fences, or an edible hedge or screen — just prune it regularly for bushier growth. Enjoy the attractive dark green foliage of this evergreen shrub year round, with a bonus explosion of pink cup-shaped flowers through September and October.
Bush food has sustained generations of Aboriginal peoples for centuries, and today represents a rich and vibrant history in the culture of this land. The Tucker Bush range aims to introduce a truly local flavour to the modern suburban home.
Though Native Oregano will tolerate light frosts and full sun, it prefers temperate, partly shaded conditions.
Choose a soil that drains easily, and water well in Summer.
This species of mint is a fast-growing shrub, reaching up to 2m tall and 1m wide, though it is easily kept small in pots.
