Sweet marjoram is a bushy half-hardy perennial sub-shrub that is often grown as an annual. Origanum majorana is multi-branched stems that spill over to create a mound. Since the stems take root where they touch the soil, the mound gradually increases in diameter. If grown in a hanging basket, the stems form a a cascade of attractive gray-green foliage. Sweet marjoram's oval leaves are soft and fuzzy. The leaves have a wonderful, very distinctive, perfumy fragrance when bruised. The flowers are tiny and arranged in burrlike heads. Sweet marjoram does best in a well-drained, slightly limey soil. Prefers full to nearly full sun. In the hottest part of summer, it should be given more shade. It likes a well-drained soil and frequent watering. Sweet marjoram is frost-tender. Propagation: It's easy to grow sweet marjoram from seed, but it's better to start it from cuttings. The flavor combines well in salads, in soups, sauces, fish, meats, and tomato slices. The flowers dry well for decorative arrangements or potpourri. Makes an effective home insect repellant. Often used in herbal sleep pillows. Marjoram makes a fragrant bath herb.

Greek oregano; O. vulgare subsp. hirtum (a.k.a. O. heracleoticum), is the popular culinary herb. It has hairy leaves and bracts, and white flowers. O. vulgare 'Viride', with white flowers and green bracts, also is used as a culinary herb. Italian oregano (Origanum X majoricum) is a hybrid resulting from crossing oregano and sweet marjoram (O. majorana), and combines the pungency of Greek oregano with the sweetness of marjoram. Grow all of the oreganos in well drained, neutral to alkaline soil (pH 6-8).
