Thyme is a shrubby plant with a woody base and many upright, twiggy branches. 'Argenteus' has silver-edged foliage and a strong, sharp lemon scent. In summer, it carries short, irregularly branched stalks with clusters of tiny pale lavender-pink flowers with leaflike bracts in irregular, oblong heads.
Hardy in zones 6-9, thyme prefers a sunny location indoors or out. Drought tolerant once established. The plant you will receive is growing in a 4" pot, but can grow to a 1ft mound.
