This small upright perennial shrub is an excellent groundcover with very fragrant foliage that becomes completely covered with small pink flowers in summer. Grows 6-10" in height. Not just an important herb for the spice rack, its leaves can add wonderful aroma to sachets or potpourris. Use in French, Creole, and Cajun recipes.
You can take sprigs for immediate use as soon as the plant is established. For starting quantities, cut entire plant 2-3" from the ground. Swish in cool water to remove dirt and debris. Pat dry and place in a single layer on a screen, or tie in bundles and hang until dry in a shady, dry area. Store in airtight containers. To freeze in ice cube trays, strip leaves and leave whole. Fill each cell of the trays 3/4 full, add hot water to cover and freeze. Remove cubes from trays and store in a freezer bag or container to add to your recipes later.
