A fragrant form of Thyme from the mountainous areas of Andalusia in Spain. These are good garden plants with very showy purple/pink flowers all summer from June to September, giving rise to the name Long Flower Thyme. Plants have fine green/grey leaves and grow to a height of 20-30cm. They look great in dry or Mediterranean gardens, herb gardens, as edging and in pots. They attract pollinators. A good culinary herb too.
Long Flower Thyme grows best in a sunny spot and sandy or gravelled very well drained soil. Plants are hardy but need good drainage to survive a UK winter.
