More delicate than the Caraway Thyme..the leaves are more pointed as Caraway Thyme.. ...it does'nt flower abundantly....But ooh ..the scent that comes free when you touch it..This thyme is more lemon scented than a lemon does....the scent is comparable with Aloysia triphylla....plus... more hardy and wintergreen.. Of course it is also very suitable for culinary use..
