<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.

Thymus praecox ssp. arcticus ‘Albus’ full sun  new plant

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

Size: 2' 0" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
