Oregano variant labelled as "greek", doesnt look greek

Cherokee_(7a)May 16, 2014

I bought this as "greek oregano", but all the photos online that I see of "greek oregano" do not look like this at all, the pictures look much similar to normal oregano.

I searched "Greek Kaliteri" but that doesnt look much like this one either.

Anyone know what this is?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Greek oregano is just a subspecies of common oregano but with slightly hairy foliage. 'Kaliteri' is a variety that has dark, almost purple leaf undersides.

You can tell texture best by touch but that sure looks slightly hairy to me so I'd say that WAS Greek oregano.
