Thymus × citriodorus ‘Gold Edge’


Golden Lemon Thyme

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.515.050


This is a bushy-growing selection of Lemon Thyme, useful both as an ornamental perennial and culinary herb. Plants form a low, shrubby evergreen clump of tiny lemon-scented green leaves, variegated with golden-yellow. Clusters of lilac-pink flowers appear in summer. Exceptional fragrance and flavor, one of the very best for cooking. Very drought tolerant once established. Plants should be lightly pruned in early spring, but no lower than 4 to 6 inches. Not easily divided. Flowers are attractive to butterflies.
