Golden Marjoram (Origanum vulgare 'Aureum') Herb in 9cm Pot

This herb has a fabulous smell and is a worthy addition to the herb garden. With an upright habit, Origanum vulgare 'Aureum' produces highly aromatic downy, round, bright golden leaves, and can grow to 30cm x 30cms. Golden Marjoram prefers a dapple shaded position out of full sun which can burn the golden leaves. Golden Majoram needs a well-drained soil and can be planted in containers where it will thrive if it is trimmed regularly to encourage new growth and keep a good shape. Small pink flowers are produced in Summer.

Herb Usage

Leaves can also be used to flavour oil and vinegar.
