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.

Even though its name doesn’t impart visions of beauty, we promise you’ll be smitten with this showy Asian Thyme. Highly fragrant dark green leaves and wire-thin creeping stems weave a dense verdant mat. Prolific, ample-sized rosy pink flowers festoon foliage that can soften your pavers, flavor your dinner or be utilized medicinally to fight cancer and infections.

Blooms July – August.

Size: 4" high x 12"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
