Sticky Kitty ~ and friend

stickykittylol1Have no idea what this plant is? This came from a seed packet purchased at hardware store this spring.  The packet was marked garden thyme, have since lost packet for detail but it was supposedly basic garden thyme.  i have never seen thyme like this, and have tried to identify plant with no luck yet.  i am not convinced this is thyme? anyway, downside no idea what this plant is.  upside, cats hate it as you can see why, hence the name “sticky kitty” lol.  sticky kitty plant’s friend is spider i was attempting a macro of, this is as good as i managed. second plus in pro column,  the bumblebees love this plant as well


anyone know what this is? is it thyme ? hope it comes back next year has worked wonders on cat deterrent.  this with sea holly should do it.

    • am really confused, it looks like some kind of thistle to me to, however, i got this from a hardware store seed rack, like Burpee seeds package. this is what came up, all the same, not random stray weed

    • we will find out soon, sent the photos to department of natural resources. tired of trying to figure out on my own what this is, it is a blessing as long as you do not touch it. it doesn’t burn and sting like nettle though.

    • thank you, yes i finally found out what it was through the university … DNR never replied

      not sure why someone would package as thyme and i hope if there were more seed packages than mine the other people also knew this was not thyme. this plant is poisonous
