Bought last year at the same time as the pineapple sage, etc. Mondomuse say it’s marjoram, and that’s good enough for me!!

    Looks like marjoram to me, those soft little leaves and distinctive globe-like flowers.
    Nice photos btw.

    Thanks! I thought it was, but was not… quite… sure… The leaves on mine seem much smaller and rosette-like than some others posted here, though maybe because it is flowering now. I’m wondering if I should let it continue flowering or if I should chop off all the blooms and make it shorter and bushier again. No idea of viable seeds would come of it, or if I would even be able to identify them!

    Thanks for the photo complement too! Good thing we have digital photography now… I seriously take about 20 photos for each one that is halfway decent. The delete button sure is handy! I love trying to take photos that show identifying characteristics (as well as look nice) because I find them much more helpful than “whole plant” shots! Ok, whole plant shots are good too, just not only whole plant shots!
