Plant found in March maybe, hidden in grass (8)


I believe the answer is:


'plant' is the definition.

'march maybe hidden in grass' is the wordplay.
'march maybe' becomes 'Jo' (Jo March is a character in Little Women).
'hidden in' is an insertion indicator.
'grass' becomes 'marram' (marram is a type of grass).
'jo' put inside 'marram' is 'MARJORAM'.

'found in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for marjoram that I've seen before include "Herb used in cooking - a Mr Major (anag)" , "Herb, maybe oregano" , "found with Rosemary in the kitchen?" , "Food seasoning also called oregano" , "Aromatic mint relative" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
