This is an upright-growing variety of thyme. Very fast-spreading, suitable for groundcover use. Shearing in mid summer results in new golden foliage. Plant may be deciduous in harsh winter conditions.

The yellow leaves fade to green in summer.May also revert to solid green and stay that way. Has a light lemon scent and flavor.
