“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 and ornamental herbs form luscious mats of ground cover or sprite-sized shrubs, embellished with miniature flowers in whites, purples and pinks. Sprinkled throughout the herb garden, or around stepping stones or bricks, Thymes love sun and well-drained soil, and can even tolerate a dose of wind and salt spray.
Woolly, Tom Thumb-like and cozy-looking, the aromatic silver-green leaves form a tight nearly prostate mat tough enough to handle foot traffic. This versatile pink flowering Thyme can creep between steps and patio stones or cushion hard edges in the garden, as well as spice up culinary dishes and impart medicinal properties.
Blooms May – June.
Size: 1" – 2" high x 10" – 12" wide.
