Origanum vulgare 'Aureum'

Golden Marjoram, Oregano, Marjoram

Valued for centuries for their medicinal and culinary purposes, some Oreganos, or Marjorams, are now used decoratively in rock gardens. Leaves are used dried and fresh in a variety of cuisines, so no herb garden would be complete without them. Relatives of Mint, the clusters of leaves and small flowers of purple, pink or white offer a strong, herbal scent. Compare the culinary types by rubbing the leaves and noting their aromas. This gives you some idea of how they taste. Easily grown, most are drought-tolerant and thrive in all soils. Some types are short-lived. Sold in containers throughout the growing season.
