Very similar to the Lemon Thyme plant variety but slightly brighter and more colourful. The Lemon Variegated Thyme is able to withstand sunnier spots in a garden, window sill or balcony.
The most common variety, this herb is known for its woodsy, earthy taste with a subtle hint of lemon. For those who want to decorate their garden with a slightly taller Thyme, which will bloom pink flowers in the summer months.
As the name suggests, the leaves of this variety are bordered with a silver hue, great for adding a lighter colour to the garden. Can be added to teas or drinks for a sweet, citrusy and minty flavour.
Lemon Thyme leaves have a wonderful yellow colour and a very strong lemon scent and taste. Perfect for those who like to use citrus as a pairing with fish or to fill the home with a fresh, clean citrus fragrance.
This variety is known for its deep vibrant pink flowers, which cover the entirety of the plant. Perfect for filling gaps in the garden or to decorate stone walls or balconies where they can grow down over the edge.
