Tips from Fran
Thymus Doone Valley is a delight to have in your yard. The foliage shifts colors from gold, to green to variegated depending on light. It has the most delightful lemon scent to make it even more interesting along with pink/purple flowers. It is not as low growing as the other thymes, thus the omittance from paths and patios due to height issues.
