This page is dedicated to the many varieties of this plant and their attributes, pro's and cons. 

Contributors: Please add to the page with postings giving a single M-sized photo and brief description. Give the Latin name if you have one [No, Nero, not that one - the one for the plant], and it's probably useful to give an idea of your planting conditions.  I've used the 'two column' format under 'Layout'.

"Archer's Gold"

I think this one is Thyme "Archer's Gold".  It's by far the most most enthusiastic variety of those that I have (and provides most of the bulk of the title photo at the top of the page.  It divides well, and I'm using it as a soft link between the grass (I hesitate to say 'lawn') and the railway.  It means I can mow up to the boundary without too much precision; meanwhile it helps keep grass off the railway.  Label suggest's it's supposed to flower, but if it does they're not very significant.

Planted in: Well drained, crumbly soil; Cambridgeshire, UK. Label says it prefers a sunny position and slightly alkaline soil.
