Description: Great as an ornamental that you can cook with! Delicate flowers appear in summer and the foliage often turns purple to red over winter creating a contrast for the season.
The aroma is rich and earthy, a stronger Thyme scent.
Size: 10-15cm H x 30-40cm W
Planting Density: Plant 30cm apart in well drained soil in full sun to light shade.
Uses: This is too strong for salads, but in cooked dishes, the robust, spicy and peppery flavours come through, adding rich and powerful Thyme flavours to your cooking.
