I bought some oregano seeds and they came up, but the package has pink flowers on it.  I have herd that Greek oregano has white flowers, so I don't know what kind of seeds these are. Please help.

Formerly listed botanically as Origanum heracleoticum, Greek oregano is often commercially grown as Origanum vulgaris, or wild marjoram. This is the variety having pink flowers and most likely the type you have. Origanum vulgaris hirtum, however, is the true Greek oregano with white flowers.
