Growing & using Orange Balsam Thyme

Orange Balsam Thyme Plants Flowering in Spring
Orange Balsam Thyme beautifully flowering and flowing through the garden.

This swath is about four feet long and two feet wide. It is a loosely organized plant that works well here clambering up the side of White Grosso Lavender and flowing under the new reddish shoots of [Pink Gaura](/organic-plants/gaura-lindheimeri-pink-pink-gaura/)**.

Orange Balsam Thyme should be pruned back by about a third after bloom. This is easiest if the thyme stems are gathered by the fistful, snipping many at one time. When plants get larger, a hedge trimmer may be used.

The aromatic flowers of the Orange Balsam Thyme Plant

Orange Balsam Thyme is a variation of Thymus vulgaris, or English Thyme. It has a wonderfully pungent scent and flavor and can be used in any recipe calling for Thyme.
