“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,” says Oberon to Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Upright or creeping, these aromatic culinary and ornamental herbs form luscious mats of ground cover or sprite-sized shrubs, embellished with miniature flowers in whites, purples and pinks. Sprinkled throughout the herb garden, or around stepping stones or bricks, Thymes love sun and well-drained soil, and can even tolerate a dose of wind and salt spray.
Exuding a spicy scent, this dense evergreen shrublet sports pretty whorls of diminutive lavender pink flowers amid grayish green needle-thin leaves. ‘Rose Williams’s natty low mounding habit makes an undemanding water wise addition to pathways, herb gardens and Mediterranean plantings.
