Origanum 'Mounding Marjoram'




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  36 Pack 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 if Mounding Marjoram Plug Trays are available.
