Thymus mastichina - 9cm pot
Spanish Thyme, or Mastic Thyme, is a very special plant ideal for dry gardens and drought-prone areas. A very small shrubby perennial with a bushy upright stature, the leaves are incredibly aromatic (I love packing orders for these, they smell so good!). An evergreen plant, the creamy white flowers appear in late spring and early summer on upright spikes and give the whole plant a uniquely fluffy appearance, adding to its appeal. Apart from its use in the landscape it is also used for both culinary and medicinal purposes, as well as providing a great food source for pollinators. Loves a hot dry site in full sun so only water to establish. Size at maturity 25cm high x 30-50cm wide. 9cm pot.
