Italian Oregano

Asked May 16, 2017, 7:04 PM EDT

A friend of ours gave us some Italian Oregano which had needles instead of the normal leaves. It looked like a rosemary plant. Had some leaves but mostly needles. We grew it for one year and it was supposed to come back but it never came back. The plants were about 8 to 12 inches high. It had some leaves but mostly needles. It was Italian oregano that came from Italy. If you squeezed the needles with your fingers, you could smell the oregano. If any body in your department would know the specific name of this oregano with needles we would appreciate your help on where we could purchase it. Thank you. Richard Crofutt email at

I've been unable to locate the oregano you describe. I think you'll have to track it down through your friend.
