A durable herb with aromatic leaves, perfect for filling between stepping stones or as a waterwise groundcover. Creates a low, lush mat of soft green foliage. Works nicely tucked into a container, allowed to trail over the edge. The small, showy, pink flowers attract butterflies.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Best grown in loose, sandy, gritty or rocky, nutrient-poor soils with sharp drainage. Tolerates drought. Dislikes moist to wet soils where rot may develop. Plants are evergreen in mild winters. Cut back stems as necessary to maintain plant appearance, to control growth/spread or to limit unsightly woody stem growth. Divide plants that become densely woody.
