ORANGE THYME

Orangelo

Thymus fragrantissimus

Also new in the edible Ornamentals and Herbs line is a French Thyme with traditional thyme scent but with overtones of a citrusy orange scent, called Orangelo. Very useful in the kitchen as a culinary herb, it is just as useful in the landscape as a fragrant ground cover, where it forms a low mat and spreads to cover the soil. During summer the plant covers itself with tiny blush white flowers. A hardy evergreen perennial, it survives to USDA zone 5. Can be utilized in packs and pots of all sizes, for herb programs, ground covers, perennials programs, and makes an excellent spiller component for mixed containers.
