Thyme Bressingham Pink: Thymus doerfleri 'Bressingham Pink'

Creeping thymes are immensely popular and look great planted in cracks between paving stones, spreading across gravelled areas, or indeed as a 'thyme lawn'. In common with other thymes it prefers poor conditions and a sunny spot. Light gravelly soil is ideal, giving the best aromatic foliage and flowers.

Thyme Bressingham Pink looks great in a mixed thyme planting, combining particularly well with the darker flowers of Thyme Caborn Wine and Roses, and a good contrast to the bright green foliage and white flowers of Creeping White Thyme.

In addition it is a good companion for smaller herbs and perennials which enjoy dry conditions, try planting with Helianthemum 'Ben Ledi' or the contrasting and later flowering Creeping Savory.
