Thymus vulgaris fragrantissimus

A thyme with overtones of a citrusy orange scent, which makes it unique. Orangelo is a hardy perennial with narrow, grey-green leaves that are covered with tiny blush-white flowers during summer. In addition to being valuable in the kitchen, it’s just as useful in the landscape as a fragrant low growing evergreen ground cover. Also great for growing in pots or mixed containers.
