Thymus neiceffii

Juniper 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.

Distinctive gray Juniper-style foliage makes this hard-to-find Thyme unique among other species in the genus. Stubby needle-shaped aromatic leaves tightly cling to reddish brown stems that lay flat on the ground, bearing bee friendly mauve-pink blooms in spring. Awash with soft pastel shades, Juniper Thyme can be threaded between pavers plus draped over rock work or container edges.

Size: 1"–2" high x 8"–10" wide; hardy to zone 4.
