Hi Ho Silver Thyme produces charming ovular leaves with variegated white margins. This foliage is light silvery-green and grows evenly on opposing sides of its stem. And when summer hits its stride, this plant blooms with petite pink flowers.
Butterflies find this plant as appetizing as we do and will often visit for a taste.
Where you plant your Hi Ho Silver Thyme is up to you, but we do have some suggestions to make the decision a bit easier. Hi Ho Silver Thyme looks amazing in an herb garden, especially when planted nearby darker green herbs like basil, oregano, or dill. It grows remarkably well in containers and thrives in window boxes. So, plant one in a container and let it live right outside your door where you can pick a bit as you need.
To keep your Hi Ho Silver Thyme thriving year after year, plant it in well-drained soil that isn't too damp. It does best in full sun. Plucking a few leaves after it flowers encourages new growth and will give you an excuse to cook. This evergreen herb will naturally spread if its branches touch the soil, so it will slowly fill its pot if allowed.
Don't skip this attractive and well-colored herb. Spice up your life with a bit of Hi Ho Silver Thyme! You will love its pleasant aroma and vibrant flavor! Order yours today!
