French Thyme with the traditional thyme scent but Orangelo has overtones of a citrusy orange scent what makes it unique. It’s a hardy perennial that survives to USDA zones 5a to 9b. Leaves are narrow, grey-green and during summer the cascading or spreading plants are covered with tiny blush-white flowers. In addition to being valuable in the kitchen, it’s just as useful in the landscape as a fragrant low growing evergreen ground cover where it spreads up to 30-35 cm (12-14”). Also suited for growing in pots and containers.
