That's basically the difference in terms of culinary usage. There may be botanical differences, I don't know.

The other day I tasted the two different oregano plants our local garden center had: greek and "italian". The greek was stronger and more robust. I've only had Mexican oregano in dried form... it tends to be harsher than all of the others.
