Favourite Plants AtoZ: Thyme

February 22, 2011 at 11:30 am Leave a comment

This old herb has been a staple in any herb garden I have seen. Useful not only for culinary purpose, this sun-loving groundcover can fill in a blank space in one season. A fragrant sun lover, with many varieties, it is sometimes hard to differentiate. Woolly Thyme is less used for culinary and more for its aesthetic features like the fuzz leaves and dense flowers. Garden Thyme is a descendant from wild Thyme, and is the form most commonly used. I usually have a hardy Creeping, a lavender, and a Lemon Thyme in my herb gardens, and I use the many varieties of Woolly, Creeping and Compact Thyme available as rock garden and walkway accents.
