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. The vivid green growth shown in the picture above will turn a deeper
reddish-green with more exposure to sunlight. It will put up a three inch tall reddish purple flower head in
summer. If the flowers get too tall for the look you want, just mow them
off and the plant will come back tighter and flatter to the ground.
Mounding Marjoram is often included in our
Alternative Lawn Assortments for Zones 6 and up.
This plant is often
available in plug trays. These trays hold 128
of all the same plant. They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of
space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by 3/4 of an inch. Check here to see
