Truly perennial herb. Winter hardy with lemon tones in the leaf when cut before flowering. Sometimes referred to as lemon thyme. Ideal substitute for boxwood in a clipped garden where boxwood would be too expensive/ large /high maintenance. Sow from seed with relative ease in spring, summer, or fall, or indoors in the winter, comes back hardy every season after. I'm using this plant in a formal clipped herb/ heat-tolerant-salad green garden as the reliable border to offset the changing fillers.
