Small sub-shrub, growing to only 6 inches, with soft felty gray leaves and dusty pink flowers. Oddly pungent, many cats are attracted to it. One of our nursery cats, Tyrone, will take a little nip off the top, then foam at the mouth and act loopy, then fall asleep. Another cat, Tater, will roll all over every single plant we have, then will actually come over and be a bit friendly with us. Fortunately, cat thyme is very tough, so it can withstand some abuse. It is very drought tolerant. It is also called herba mariveri, and has many medicinal uses.
Plant in full sun, perhaps out of reach of your cats until it is established.
