A perennial, aromatic herb growing to a height of 30 inches with dark-green ovoid leaves and spiky white and pink clusters of flowers, Sweet Marjoram is a species native to the Mediterranean regions of North Africa and Egypt. The plant is now cultivated in various northern European countries.
There is confusion between species of Marjoram and Oregano: 'Wild Marjoram' (Origanum vulgare) is also known as 'Common Oregano' and is distilled to make 'Oregano oil'. Majorana is the only variety that should be labeled 'Sweet Marjoram".
