White Creeping Thyme

Thymus praecox ssp. arcticus Albus

<i>Thymus praecox</i> ssp. <i>arcticus</i> ‘Albus’

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.

An elfin-sized army of bright green rounded leaves and wiry thin, straw-colored stems weaves a low-lying springy mat. Whether nestled into nooks or stowed amid pavers, the attractive evergreen foliage gets a refreshing lift when petite white flowers form a thick summertime icing.

Blooms July – August.

Size: 2' high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
