Cultivars of uncertain origin

Thymus 'Bertram Anderson'

Small shrub with diverging to erect branches, soon rooting at the nodes. Stems hairy all round. Leaves green, suffused with yellow to a varying degree. Yellow colour more prominent on regrowth from old prostrate branches. Flowers sparse, axillary, pale lilac. [T. 'Anderson's Gold' a cultivar name coined to replace the everyday name T. 'Bertram Anderson']

This cultivar is usually assigned to T. ×citriodorus.

Thymus 'Lavender Lass'

A hybrid with T. mastichina as the female parent. Pollen probably from T. polytrichus.

Habit like a small T. mastichina. Leaves lanceolate, petiolate, margins occasionally toothed, ciliate and with longer hairs on the undersurface. Lateral veins indistinct. Upper lip of calyx with teeth 3 times as long as wide. Cilia about 0.7 mm long. Corolla very pale pink and without markings.

Thymus 'Mount Tomah'

Apparently identical to T. 'Bertram Anderson'.

Discovered in the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah, Sydney;

Thymus 'Soft Blush'

Open, mat-forming shrub with decumbent rather than creeping stems; stems hairy all round. Leaves grey-green, broadly spoon-shaped to rhomboid, with long and short hairs on the margins and both surfaces. Flowering heads about 15 mm wide, developing on decumbent shoots; heads elongating to produce interrupted 'spikes'. Flowers female, teeth of upper lip of calyx ciliate, lower lip of corolla faintly tinged pink. Flowering period long.

This hybrid of unknown parentage has been sold as T. 'Pink Chintz', a cultivar which appears not to be grown in Australia. [T. 'Pink Chintz']
