A herb garden is not complete without at least one plant of thyme. 'Silver Queen', however, should not be confined to the vegetable plot. An evergreen, spreading shrub, it has attractive cream-variegated, or silvery-white oval leaves and delightful pale-pink flowers. Fresh leaves can be picked all year round. This cultivar will look excellent planted as edging where a few of its stems may occasionally be crushed under foot to release its wonderful citrus scent. Divide the plants every three years and replant. It is frost hardy. If you do not have a garden, thyme will grow in a pot on your windowsill.
