Thyme (Lime Golden) Thymus cv.
18. Lime Golden
This non-edible (or at least not tastily-edible) variety does best as an infusion of color to the herb garden.

For a citrusy addition to recipes turn instead to 'Lemon' thyme. 'Lime' is well-worth space in the herb garden for the soft mounds of bright limey-green foliage that grow   Click to display 'Lime Golden' tag image 6"-12" 6"-12" 5-9 4˝" White
