Due to these unusual times of CoVid-19 and the extremely high volume of orders that we have received here at Crimson Sage over the last 3 months, we have decided to stop taking new plant orders at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we need some time to fulfill our current orders and to replenish some of our inventory!! Thanks for your understanding, patience, and choosing to shop with a small, woman owned business. It is truly heart warming to see so many folks nationwide planting their Medicinal Gardens. We will be back up and running as soon as we can!

If you have already placed an order with us, we are shipping as much as possible each week and plan to get your orders shipped over the month of June into early July.

Cat Thyme

Email
Description

This compact perennial herb is actually not in the thyme family at all, but is closely related to Germander. Originating from the western parts of the Mediterranean, Cat Thyme has small grayish green leaves and an upright form very similar to Thyme, yet emits a very unusual, strong, musky fragrance when the leaves are crushed. This fragrance is incredibly attractive to cats and seems to be just as appealing if not more so than Catnip. Sometimes referred to as Kitty Nirvana or Kitty Crack depending on the cat! Cat Thyme eventually forms a mounded small shrub which can reach 2 to 3 feet in milder climates, and makes a great edge plant in the front of a bed. Small, bright magenta flower spikes form in mid to late summer. Prefers an alkaline, well drained soil, full sun and is very drought tolerant once established. Hardy Perennial to Zone 5.

Latin Name Teucrium marum
