Due to these unusual times of CoVid-19 and the extremely high volume of orders that we have received here at Crimson Sage over the last 3 months, we have decided to stop taking new plant orders at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we need some time to fulfill our current orders and to replenish some of our inventory!! Thanks for your understanding, patience, and choosing to shop with a small, woman owned business. It is truly heart warming to see so many folks nationwide planting their Medicinal Gardens. We will be back up and running as soon as we can!

If you have already placed an order with us, we are shipping as much as possible each week and plan to get your orders shipped over the month of June into early July.

Thyme, Spanish

Email
Description

This rare and pungent thyme originating from Spain and Portugal is a very attractive, delicate plant with small, resinous leaves and upright branching producing small white blooms. It grows into a compact, nicely shaped mound with a very strong scent. Spanish Thyme is a bit more camphorous than German thyme, but still delicious as a culinary spice. It has been used interchangeably with English and German Thyme for medicinal puposes. Thyme is well known as a cough remedy specific for bronchitis, pertussis and general upper respiratory congestion. Used externally, Thyme is both anti-microbial and anti-fungal and can be used for all sorts of skin rashes, minor scrapes and infections. The essential oil extracted from thyme, Thymol, is used extensively in antiseptic mouthwash, as well as other external applications. This sweet plant is perfect for the rockery or sunny edge of the garden. Prefers well drained, sandier soi. Full sun. Very drought tolerant once established. Perennial. To zone 7.

Latin Name Thymus Zygis
