Flowering Hyssop Thyme is one of the endemic plants in Gaziantep, Turkey — it grows wild in the Mediterranean climate. The plants are collected and dried by local villagers. Our partners in Turkey then cut the thyme into small pieces.
The leaves are long and pointed, and the plant can reach a height of 4–15 inches. The vibrant bright purple flowers on the growing plants turn dark when dried.
