Cuban Oregano, aka Mexican Mint and Indian Borage, is in fact none of those, although it does belong to the mint family. Thick, hairy, succulent-like leaves have a strong oregano-like smell and taste, and can be used in cooking. Honestly though, this is such an attractive and intriguing plant, gardeners use it as an ornamental in container planters, hanging baskets, and along borders. Planted at the edge of hanging baskets or container planters, Cuban Oregano will trail somewhat as it grows; pinching the tips will create a shorter, bushier profile.
