Sometimes known as knotted marjoram because the flowers develop in small tight knots, this tender perennial is often grown as an annual or kept in pots as a biennial for use during winter. It is perhaps the most popular variety for culinary purposes, used whenever a recipe calls for marjoram, and retains its uniquely spicy, fresh flavour even after drying. In fact, most cooks consider it superior to other Origanum species that are sometimes hardier or grown as ornamentals. Plants are very easy to raise from seed and cuttings, so it is not difficult to maintain supplies.
