Thymus 'Archer's Gold' Description

A lovely blanket of yellow, lemon-scented thyme is just what’s needed for bare soil between pavers, edges of sunny beds, or containers without filler. ‘Archer’s Gold’ thyme is a fantastic hardy ground cover that can even be used for cooking. The butterflies and bees think it tastes pretty good too; when its pink flowers show up in summer, so will the pollinators! It won’t give you a bit of trouble once established in your landscape, as it enjoys dry conditions, resists deer, and tolerates heat and light foot traffic.

Special features:  Attracts butterflies, cold hardy, deer resistant, drought tolerant, low maintenance, fast-growing, fragrant, edible, beneficial to pollinators

Soil: Grows easily in average soils, but prefers sandy or rocky soils with good drainage. Will tolerate and perform well in poor soils.
Light: Performs best in full sun.
Water: Prefers dry conditions and will not tolerate overly moist or soggy conditions. Likely to develop root rot if overwatered in soil that has poor drainage.
Spacing: 6-12" apart
Fertilizing: Does not require fertilizer.
Winterizing: If planted in its coldest zone (5) it benefits from original garden placement in an area protected from strong, freezing winds in winter. If already planted in a cold corridor, cover with mulch.
Maintenance & pruning: If it starts to get woody and leggy, sheer back to last layer of healthy green and it will bulk up. In spring all old foliage can be trimmed off.
