Since thyme is quite limited in our climate, we were thrilled to find a wonderful ornamental thyme substitute. Okay, it has no fragrance or culinary value, but Herniaria glabra 'Sea Foam' looks to all the world like a variegated thyme. This discovery comes from Hortech's Dave MacKenzie. The tiny green leaves are edged in creamy white...very cute! The ground-hugging mat makes a slowly spreading patch to 1' wide in two years. If that's not enough, rupturewort is great for urinary problems, since it increases urea and sodium emission without increasing urine flow. Aren't you going to be the popular one in the neighborhood?

Minute green and white flecked leaves on creeping stems form a dense foamy-looking mat. Flowers of tiny white stars bloom in summer. For thick, lush results, give water with good drainage. Full to partial sun, but protect from burning sun in hot climates. Sea Foam keeps the bright color year round. Photo taken New Year's Day in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Perfect as mini scene lawn or meadow. Excellent in troughs, rock gardens or as companion plant to Bonsai.
