zum Namen: wohl von »posy« (engl.) = Blumenstrauß
Blätter: weißbunt
Duft/Geschmack: »Silver Posie« hat den klassisch-herben Thymianduft!
Sonstiges: bei unter Thymus, Plant portraits, Thymus vulgaris »Silver Queen«, Nomenclature:
»There are also two silver variegated bushy thymes, one of which is lemon scented and the other thyme scented, but which are otherwise practically identical.  The former is regarded as a cultivar of Thymus citriodorus and given the name 'Silver Queen', and the latter is known as T. vulgaris 'Silver Posie' because it smells of thyme.  Quite obviously this is not a satisfactory determination of species.«
