(Mother-of-thyme) An excellent choice for a groundcover, decorated in red-pink flowers and perfumes the air when walked upon. Also great for rock gardens, walkways or between flagstones. The compound “thymol” is a powerful antiseptic and can be utilized in teas or tinctures to combat infections and mucus congestion. An ideal culinary variety with an aroma slightly milder than the English variety. Plant in sandy, well drained soil in full sun. Thyme is typically low maintenance but sensitive to over watering, as it is susceptible to fungal diseases and root rot. Height 3 inches.
