Zaatar, Sweet Marjoram

Origanum syriacum

Tender Perennial (Zone 10)

Full to Partial Sun

8”-18” Tall

Plant 8”-12” apart


Native to the Medditerranean where it has been used to flavor foods for thousands of years. Zaatar has a flavor that is a bit of a combination of sweet marjoram, thyme, and oregano with a nice bit of zing to it. It’s also an ingredient of Za’atar, a blend of spices, sumac, toasted sesame seeds and salt. The flavor is stronger before the small white flowers open up. It can be grown as an annual in the ground, or as a perennial in a container, but should be brought in before any threat of frost.
