Thymus vulgaris


Thyme grows in zones 5-9 to a height of 12-15 inches and produces masses of pink or purple flowers throughout the summer.  Grow in full sun or partial shade in well drained soil that is kept on the dry side.  This is another Mediterranean plant that likes it sunny and warm and bees LOVE its flowers.

The volatile oils in thyme are the source of both its carminative and antimicrobial properties.  Used traditionally for digestive complaints and externally to support wound healing.  Next time you have a bit of indigestion, try a soothing cup of tea with some thyme included.
