Thymus serpyllum 'Rainbow Falls' (Thyme 'Rainbow Falls')Herb in 9cm Pot

Thyme is grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant, not only is its foliage is attractive, the flowers are long-lasting and very pretty, and 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 'Rainbow Falls' reaches a height of 10 cm and with its small yellow and green variegated leaves and mauve blooms, this vigorous very low-growing creeping thyme is an excellent ground cover plant, it is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border perhaps it is seen at its best as a container plant where its mottled leaves on reddish stems can cascade over the sides. Thyme 'Rainbow Falls' ,  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, also ensure that the plant is cut back after flowering again to help maintain shape. Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun.
