Thyme, Long-flowered (Thymus longiflorus), packet of 30 seeds
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 12
Evergreen perennial subshrub endemic to the southerly coast of Spain, an area known as Andelusia. Thyme-scented, with leaves shaped similarly to Santolina and equally fond of excellent drainage and, once established, tolerant of heat and drought. The herb will naturalize well in warm-temperate and Mediterranean-like climates. Flowering to only 12-inches tall, the plant produces scale-like bracts arranged in pink-tinged cones crowned by numerous long-tubed purple-pink infloresences. Very showy. Traditional uses (TWM): condiment spice and preservative, carminative. Plant prefers sun and the perfect drainage afforded by rockery, gravel or sand. Sow seeds in warm, light and moist conditions with germ in 1 to 3 weeks and ongoing.
