...The problem in Florida is that we’re on the high end of thyme’s heat tolerance range, and summer is unrelentingly humid. Many other plants I’ve tried such as agastache, penstemons, some salvias, epilobium and gaura have made it through a season or 2 and then melted away.

How about a lawn of prickly pear cactus? :lol:

Probably too wet.

I could show you vast acres as far as the eye can see of the things just north of me.
Not unless they have been plowed under or bulldozed for housing developments.

The only things we have to fear in the kitchen are hot oil and falling knives.

Wow! I’ll bet it’s fantastic when they bloom.

My parents house in Central NY has heavy clay soil that for some reason wild thyme thrives in. It equally competes with the grass in their lawn and outcompetes the grass in some areas. Smells great every time the lawn is mowed.
