Thymus 'Hartington Silver'


Availability : Available

Description :

Here is a lovely thyme! Refreshing bright green foliage with cream edges and sweet Parma pink flowers. It forms a tidy carpet with its tiny little leaves. Yes, please!

In the garden we plant it on the edge of an alpine rockery, in cracks, scree, the gaps in a dry stone wall or in a trough.

Its delicate appearance is deceptive as Thymus 'Hartington Silver' thrives in tough conditions. No need for compost or commercial potting soil which would just turn it brown until it perishes. Poor, well-drained, gravelly soil and sunshine. That's what it likes!

What's in the name?

Thymus 'Hartington Silver' comes from the garden of Frank and Marjorie Lawley, (Herterton House Garden Nursery - Northumberland, GB). Thymus 'Highland Cream' is the same plant, but with a different name.

Note: when planting ensure that you water sufficiently for the plant to drink.
