Thymus ciliatus MORROCAN THYME. It makes low ground covering mats of hairy leaves, 5cm tall by 50cm or more across, which are covered in spring by heads of soft pink flowers set in purple calyces. The foliage will often turn red during winter. This plant needs a spot in full sun. Cuttings may be taken in late spring. Remove the lower leaves and then push the cut end into a container of moist soil. Keep the pot in a warm, shaded area and keep slightly damp.
