Thymus polytrichus subsp. brittannicus 'Eureka'

Prostrate, with yellowish spoon-shaped to elliptical leaves, basal cilia prominent but lacking hairs on either surface. Flower heads small, shortly stalked, about 10 mm wide, upper lip of calyx ciliate.

A newly named cultivar said to have a fragrance similar to garden thyme, it has been regarded as a cultivar of T. vulgaris, to which it bears no other resemblance.

Retains its yellow colour through the summer.

Possibly of hybrid origin. [T. vulgaris hort 'Aureus' in part]. Unlike the British T. vulgaris hort. 'Aureus', the Australian plant is not a golden cultivar of T. pulegioides.
