As a comment about Lemon Thyme (Thymus x citriodorus), Marilyn wrote:

"Thymus citriodorus is an evergreen sub-shrub, growing to 3.9 inches in height by 12 inches in spread. It prefers full sun and well draining soil. The bloom period is mid to late summer, with pink to lavender flowers that are a nectar source for bees and butterflies.

Thymus citriodorus and its cultivars are cultivated as ornamental plants, culinary herbs, and medicinal plants. In gardens, the plants are often used as groundcovers: in planting beds, between stepping stones, and in containers. They are a drought tolerant plant when established. As honey plants attracting wildlife, they are used in wildlife gardening.

The leaves are used as a flavoring herb in cooking, raw in salads, and for a herbal teas. Herbal medicinal uses can include the using leaves and/or essential oils in: antiseptics, asthma and respiratory aromatherapy, deodorants, and disinfectants."

What zones are they most comfortable with? Mine die by Aug, seem to NEVER bloom, but grow thru Winter and accelerate about Feb. I am in zone 9a, also mine appear to be only a groundcover.
So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!
