Orange Thyme

Thymus fragrantissimus

A thyme with an orange-spicy scent! When you cook with it, the clear orange flavour lingers in the mouth without the harsh aftertaste of other thymes. Has lots of light pink blooms in Summer which are a delight for bees. Useful for edging, around paving stones, and does well in containers.
