Heretus Thyme is one of our most
unusual ground cover thymes with its long, narrow, gray-green leaves that
give it an almost lacy appearance. But, don't let its appearance fool you.
This is one tough plant and is worthy of any garden. The Heretus Thyme on the left
peeking out from under a Tricolor Sage
measures about six inches in diameter and was planted only three months
before in June. At maturity it can easily reach 10 to 12 inches in diameter.
Even more impressive than the way Heretus
Thyme grows and covers the ground is the incredible display of lilac flowers
it produces in early spring. Below a Heretus Thyme bud gets ready to
burst forth with its gorgeous color.
