Sweet Marjoram Plants

Origanum x majoricum

'Sweet Marjoram', also known as "Knotted" Marjoram because of its knot-like buds, is an elegant and versatile culinary herb with a milder flavor than its cousin, Oregano. It has a much sweeter flavor, described as "balsam-like". An essential ingredient in your herb gardening efforts. Marjoram plants are among our most popular culinary herb plants.

Sweet Marjoram is a key ingredient in Bouquet Garnis because it pairs well with Parsley, Thyme, Bay and Tarragon for seasoning soups and stews. When adding it to sauces or other hot dishes, wait til the last few minutes of cooking time to toss it in, or it will lose the intensity of its flavor.

Aromatic Sweet Marjoram

Aromatic like other plants in the Oregano family, Ancient Greeks associated sweet marjoram with the love god Aphrodite and it was used to make crowns for newlyweds to inspire love and prosperity.

Medicinally, it was used to soothe headaches, toothaches, earaches and to treat asthma. Its mild antiseptic properties make it useful as a general digestive aide and it is also known to aid menstrual problems.

Wonderful plant August 24, 2015
Reviewer: Donna Peltier from Stillwater, MN United States  
This plant arrived looking alarmingly wilted and yellow.  However, after transplanting it to a larger pot and setting it in the garden in a semi-shady spot, it swiftly revived and is now blooming.  The tiny blossoms are pretty, and the delicate scent of this plant is delightful.  I am looking forward to using it in soups and stews this fall, and will be bringing it in to overwinter inside.
