Growing & using Mounding Marjoram

Mounding Marjoram flowers with bee

Originally introduced by Oregano lover Betty Rollins, Mounding Marjoram (or Betty Rollins Oregano) with its minty fragrance and ability to hug the ground is one of our favorite ground covers. Mounding marjorma does flower and will put up two to three inch tall reddish purple flower heads in summer. If the flowers get too tall for the look you want, just mow them to about two inches above the ground and the plant will come back tighter and flatter to the ground. We find them the perfect height the way they naturally grow and love their color. The bees love them too! Can you find the bee on the photo to the left?
