Spanish Lemon Thyme
Thymus baeticus
Uses: Culinary/Aromatic/Medicinal Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 6-8)
(Tomillo limonero) A highly aromatic low-growing thyme from the dry mountains of southern Spain. The heady aroma can vary among individual plants, with pronounced sweet and spicy, lemony, and floral elements usually dominant. However, the essential oil of the foliage, responsible for its aroma and flavour, is known to range even further, with notes of eucalyptus and even camphor sometimes prominent. Traditionally used as a medicinal tea, studies have shown it is a strong antimicrobial. It also has a potent antispasmolytic effect, which helps calm the digestive system. Best grown in a sunny, sandy, well-drained location. Creamy white flowers.
