THYMUS

Diminutive Mediterranean members of the mint family with tiny, usually heavily scented leaves and masses of little flowers in whorls. Well suited to an herb garden or rock garden; prostrate, mat-forming types make good small-space groundcovers. Attractive to bees. Botanical names are constantly undergoing revision and often confusing.

Thymus camphoratus

Grows to 1 1/2 ft. tall and wide, with narrow gray-green leaves that smell like camphor. Blooms in late spring, early summer; flower clusters consist of woolly, rosy purplish bracts and tiny white flowers.
