Thymus vulgaris 'Argenteus'

Thyme, Silver

A flavorful aromatic with small white-edged silver leaves and lavender blooms in summer. Very useful in the border, for edging and in containers.

Interesting Notes:
Thyme is a perfect container garden plant, softening the lines and creeping over the edge of the pot. Silver thyme mixes well with other plants in shades of silver, blues or purples, adding a quality of light to darker foliage.
