Wooly thyme's Latin name, Thymus pseudolanuginosus, refers to the wool-like feel of its leaves....
Thymus pseudolanuginosus is an attractive groundcover, but it is somewhat less vigorous than some of its Thymus cousins.
Not only are the leaves of wooly thyme groundcovers
a gray-green, but the silver hairs on the foliage also give wooly thyme
a silvery, fuzzy look.
