Description

The perennial wild marjoram, which makes a good filler in garden borders. It has a compact shape and height to compliment other taller plants and a soft, aromatic scent. Dark pink buds hold pale pink flowers in summer through to early autumn, with regular deadheading. It’s quick to establish and the bees love it.

Care Tips

In early spring, before the plant starts to grow again, cut back the old flowering stems to the base. Raise pots off the ground in winter, to avoid ensure they drain freely.
