Thyme, Silver Queen - Thymus 'Silver Queen'
A native of Southern Europe, Thyme Silver Queen, or Thymus x citriodorus 'Silver Queen' is now grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant. Its foliage is attractive, the flowers are long-lasting and very pretty, it is drought tolerant - an overall easy-care plant. On top of that it is one of the most useful herbs for the kitchen.
Thyme Silver Queen reaches a height of 25-30 cm and with its small grey and white variegated leaves and pale lilac flowers, it is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border. Thymes are also known as very good container plants.
Thyme Silver Queen likes a well-drained light soil, and it should not be too rich in nutrients as this will only encourage the plant to grow 'leggy' and lose its compact shape. Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun.
Thyme Silver Queen is an excellent herb for flavouring stuffings and stews, and is ideal added to a bouquet garni. Pies and chutneys are also given an extra lift when this aromatic herb is added.
