Thymus pseudolanuginosus

Woolly Thyme

No spice rack would be complete without culinary Thyme for use in meat, poultry and fish dishes. Use aromatic ornamental varieties as ground covers and in edging. Their blooms are not showy, but attract bees and butterflies. Plants withstand some neglect, but water in hottest parts of summer. Shear unattractive foliage and spent flowers. Culinary types are sold in the herb sections of nurseries. Ornamental types are available in cell packs or larger containers throughout the growing season.
Thymus pseudolanuginosus, Woolly Thyme
The best variety for a ground cover, it spreads its fragrant gray foliage quickly to make flat carpets, cascade over walls, or fill in between stepping stones. Crushing underfoot releases its sweet smell. Soft pink flowers appear in summer.
