Elfin Thyme and More


Thymus “Elfin” is very low growing, so this photo is deceptive. It has the feeling of a taller plant or a mound, but it’s not actually doing that. The camera adds 10 pounds they say, on reality tv, but here it adds inches in height instead.

Haha!

Tiny purple flowers in summer. Fragrant green leaves. Great in rock gardens and mixed pots. Hardy to below 0F.

This next one is a taller thyme. It’s Silver Thyme.

Thymus “Argenteus”

I’m adding it onto the bottom of the Elfin Thyme post because it’s not in bloom and so it doesn’t deserve it’s own post, just an add-on.
