Oreganos make a fragrant and edible groundcover

Having herbs as groundcovers is such an easy and good way to use small spaces under and around shrubs and fruit trees. I have been collecting various oreganos for the purpose and they are really thriving. Some are better than others for cooking but they all look terrific from the lush greens to the variegated varieties.

I have parsley amongst flowers and purple flowering sages and prostrate rosemaries along a boundary wall. Thymes make good edging plants and attract the bees. The other great thing about herbs is that they are generally hardy and respond brilliantly to a good haircut with hedge clippers.
