An invaluable seasoning in the kitchen, thyme has a subtle, woodsy flavor that complements a variety of foods. A staple herb of chefs, and one of the primary ingredients of bouquet garni. With very small leaves and delicate, edible flowers, thyme makes a lovely, drought-tolerant, 12"-tall landscape plant; use as a low hedge around your herb or vegetable garden. An excellent container plant to enjoy indoors or out.
