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 and compact to 4” tall and 12” across. Lots of light pink blooms in Summer are a delight for the local bee population. Useful for edging, around paving stones and nice in containers, of course. Cut it back if it gets shabby, it re-grows quickly.
