Thyme, Golden – Thymus pulegioides aureus

Thyme, Golden  – Thymus pulegioides aureus is an eye-catching Thyme with bright golden foliage. Pretty pink flowers in the summer that are also highly attractive to bees and other pollinators.

A great variety for use in herb gardens at the front of a border or alternatively in containers. The golden foliage really can brighten up pots and baskets. It especially works well over winter months by providing a welcome splash of colour.

Ensure to plant in full sun to retain the golden colour.

A popular herb in the kitchen which adds flavour to many dishes. A medicinal herb too, it has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
