Mother Of Thyme

Thymus  Pink Chintz

May–July.

Thymus

Thyme

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,” says Oberon to Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Upright or creeping, these aromatic culinary herbs form luscious mats of ground cover or sprite-sized shrubs, embellished with miniature flowers in whites, purples and pinks. In the herb garden, or around and between stepping stones or bricks, Thymes love sun and well drained soil, and can even tolerate a dose of wind and salt spray.

Dressed up with a fresh pink blanket of bloom and a delicate texture, ‘Pink Chintz’ is one of the first Thymes to flower. Obscured by its colorful cover, this vigorous ground hugger’s small grayish green leaves are strongly scented, close-knit and fuzzy. Try tucking Mother of Thyme in the rockery alongside Stachys ‘Silky Fleece’ and Dracocephalum ‘Blue Dragon’ for a detailed association.

Size: 1"–2" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
