Lemon Thyme



Commonly called lemon thyme, this plant is primarily grown as a culinary herd with its rich lemon-scented leaves. It produces whorls of tiny, tubular, pale-lilac flowers at the ends of stems in early summer. Attractive to pollinators, it can also be used as a ground cover between rock paths and as a border in gardens.
