Thyme (Thymus) is a genus with more than 350 different species that is widespread in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. It is aromatic fragrant perennials or half bushes with thin or thread-like stems, which are square in cross section and finely hairy. The leaves are opposite, and they are oval, whole, entire margins and often evergreen. The flowers are assembled in compact, terminal heads. The individual flowers are irregular with white, pink or purple petals, and can be eaten. The fruits are nuts.
