Thymus x citriodorus

Thymus x citriodorus
Common name variegated lemon thyme
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers lavender-pink (June)
Size 2"
Light sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil, drought-tolerant

Good sprawling, well-behaved groundcover. We don't use it as an herb - its ornamental qualities are sufficient to keep this around. Last winter, for some reason, we lost most of our thymes (it wasn't too cold - maybe too wet), but a few pieces came back, and have re-established themselves admirably.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
