Thymbra spicata, Mediterranean thyme - 9cm pot
A few small plants available of this little beauty, rarely grown in NZ, and one that will appeal to those with a penchant for culinary treasures. Glossy green narrow leaves which are rich in oils and have a spicy, slightly savoury scent and flavour. Short spikes of lavender-pink flowers appear in summer, which are loved by bees. A small shrubby habit to around 30cm. Full sun and good drainage is loved by this native of Greece. 9cm pot.
