THYMUS 'Doone Valley'
Doone Valley thyme is a mat-forming evergreen perennial grown for its ornamental and culinary value. In summer, short spikes of lavender-pink flowers with reddish buds emerge from carpets of aromatic olive-green, yellow-spotted leaves.
Native to dry grasslands of Europe and Asia, most thymes prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained neutral to alkaline soil. Cut 'Doone Valley' back hard in early spring and trim lightly after flowering to retain its compact shape. Thyme leaves may be used fresh or dried. This plant is well-suited to herb gardens and rock gardens or can be used between pavings or as a groundcover.
