Dual Purpose-Culinary and Ornamental
Suitable for both ornamental and culinary use, this Thyme is a bit more upright than Creeping Thyme with fragrant gray-green foliage edged in creamy white. Foliage will develop a warm burgundy cast in cooler weather. Harvesting will generate more culinary leaves. Blooms lavender pink, making this a nice dual purpose edger.

Thymus General Information

Upright Thyme looks spectacular anywhere in the landscape! Suitable for ornamental or culinary use. Works well in combination planters. Foliage can be used to flavor meat, marinades and soups. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Thymus Plant Care

Will tolerate most soils provided they are well-drained (especially in winter). Division can be done in spring or fall. Can be divided and replanted to regenerate growth or dig and transplant a few rooted sections to establish a new area. Cut off any winter damage to new growth in early spring. Any heavy pruning should be done before August. Evergreen in winter.
