Thymus vulgaris ‘Passion Pink’
at Digging Dog

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.

Saluted as both a culinary delight and a winsome garden addition, this pint-sized evergreen shrublet gives you plenty to be passionate about. Rounded shiny dark green leaves shape a compact upright habit that’s garnished with good-sized clusters of look-at-me bright pink flowers. Ideal nestled into the rockery, herb garden or topping a stone wall, ‘Passion Pink’s tidy mien responds well to shearing, requires little care and can accompany Silene ‘Compacta’ or Allium ‘Blue Eddy’.

Blooms June–July

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