It is easy to see why the common name thyme has been applied to this plant. Each of
these gray little leaves is actually covered in hairs which provide shade
for this plant and help it to survive hot, arid summers.
Like Teucrium chamaedrys
(Germander), the profuse bloom of Cat Thyme attracts bees. Bees
as we all know are necessary for pollination of veggies and fruits and
other plants you might want to save the seeds of.
This plant is often
available in plug trays. These trays hold 128
of all the same plant. They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of
space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by an inch. Check here to see
