Don't let the delicate, tiny oval leaves and pretty lilac and pink flowers on this perennial herb fool you. German Winter Thyme is a very winter hardy plant. The fragrant leaves add a delicate flavoring with a hint of cloves to meat, poultry, fish and vegetable dishes. The leaves, which are very high in vitamin C, are even sometimes used for a nutritious tea. German Winter Thyme can be used fresh or dried. The plants grow 8-10 in. tall, making them an ideal size for planting along the edge of a walkway, in a front border or in containers.
