A versatile plant for the herb garden and ornamental plantings. This low growing perennial, native to the Mediterranean, has green leaves edged in gold. Aromatic lemon scented leaves. Makes an attractive edging in perennial borders or cultivated and dried as a savory culinary herb. Patios, walks, rock gardens, stone walls, and mixed pots all benefit from its creeping, cascading habit. It spills gracefully over stone walls and is excellent between pavers where occasional foot traffic releases its distinct aroma. Evergreen foliage is deer-proof.
Thrives in any dry, well-drained spot in full sun. Dislikes wet feet.
Forms a beautiful mat 1 to 2 inches tall and 18 inches wide. Evergreen.
