  • This Marjoram ships in a 2.5" inch cup

Marjoram (Origanum majorana) is a perennial herb that's closely related to oregano. It is evergreen in zones 9 and 10, but in most zones it is grown either as an annual or as a potted plant that is brought indoors when the weather turns cold. The low-growing plant has a mounded, shrubby appearance with aromatic, ovate, gray-green leaves that stretch around an inch long. Tiny white or pink flowers bloom from mid- to late summer, though they are not especially showy. Best planted in the spring, marjoram grows slowly and eventually becomes a spreading ground cover.

TriStar Plants


Marjoram and oregano are closely related plants, both being members of the mint family. They even look similar as bushy herbs with small leaves. However, oregano's aroma and flavor are much stronger than marjoram's. Oregano leans spicy and slightly bitter while marjoram is more sweet and floral.
