Native Thyme is a small shrub indigenous to the southern regions of Australia. Native Thyme is commonly found through the New South Wales coastline from Mount Warning near the Queensland border all the way to Victoria, as well as the Central Tablelands.
It flowers in early spring, with lots of small, bright pink/purple flowers that become a haven for bees. A part of the mint family, the leaves can be used as a powerful herb to flavour lamb or meat, or other hearty meals.
Native Thyme holds a deeper flavour than found in other mints. With earthy notes, and a slight pepperiness, it makes it a perfect addition with red meat, as well as game, chicken, and fish. We recommend to use the herb fresh from the plant.

Growing Conditions: Native Thyme is well suited to a potted life, playing a similar role to a rosemery shrub. Native Thyme can grow large, and prefers a sheltered, and well-draining position. If over-watered, it may receive root-rot. It is described as fast growing shrub and can be harvested in the first year - annual pruning encourages new growth.
Size: A small shrub/tree, it can grow up to 2-3 metres in height.
