Lemon thyme is a small, shrub-like herb with tiny leaves growing in clusters along multi-branched stems. Mature stems become woody at the base and the tops are tender and light green. The leaves are lance-shaped, slightly elliptical, and are extremely small, measuring only 1 millimetre in size. The herb looks relatively identical to English thyme; where it differs is in its aroma and taste. Natural compounds in Lemon thyme, like limonene and thymol, give the herb a citrusy flavor. The lemon flavor can mask some of the bitterness typically present in garden thyme. During the summer months, flowers with small, two-lipped, lilac blossoms appear at the ends of the stems. The flowers will remain until the weather gets cool. Lemon thyme flowers have the same smell and flavor of the leaves
