Thymus fragrantissimus
“Orange Thyme”

Thymus fragrantissimus “Orange Thyme”

A new Thyme with an orange-spicy scent. When you cook with it, the clear orange flavor lingers in the mouth without the harsh aftertaste of other thymes. This species grows short & compact to 4” tall & 12” across. Lots of light pink blooms in Summer are a delight for the local bee population. Useful for edging, around paving stones & nice in containers, of course. Cut it back if it gets shabby, it re-grows quickly.
