French Summer Thyme

Thymus vulgaris. Closely related to Garden Thyme, aromatic French Summer Thyme has more narrow, pointed leaves with a bit of a gray tint. The famed culinary Thyme from France, it is higher in essential oil content than other varieties which means more and better flavor. A bit less hardy than Garden Thyme, perennial French Summer Thyme will thrive in horticultural zone 6 and warmer but should be brought indoors in colder climates once there is a threat of frost. Hardiness zones: 6-9. (OP.)
