Thyme - French
French Thyme with a traditional thyme fragrance and overtones of a citrusy orange scent. Orangelo is useful in the kitchen and quite interesting as a fragrant ground cover in the landscape, where it forms a low mat and spreads to cover the soil. During summer the plant fills itself with tiny white flowers. A hardy evergreen perennial that survives to USDA zone 5. It can be used in containers of all sizes, as ground cover, with perennials or makes an excellent filler component for mixed containers.
Shrub-like habit. Very dense, small leaves. If soil is too rich growth will be to rapid, the plant weakened and the taste lessened. Do not pick leaves after mid-August to allow branches to harden in preparation for winter months. Zone 3.
