Loose clusters of pale pink flowers appear from mid summer to early autumn among aromatic golden leaves that mature to a deeper green. This golden, wild marjoram makes a pretty edging plant for a sunny herb or gravel garden, where the leaves can be used to make savoury sauces. It thrives on alkaline soil, an important consideration when planting a site recently cleared of builders' rubble.Garden care: Ensure that plants are well watered during the growing season. Cut back established plants by a two-thirds in late summer to prevent them from becoming too straggly.Goes well with: Salvia officinalis 'Icterina', Melissa officinalis, Thymus serphyllum, Petroselium crispum, Ocimum sativum, Mentha spicata
