This is a wonderful selection of Creeping Thyme from England. It form a fragrant ground-hugging carpet of tiny green leaves, brightly splashed with creamy white. Clusters of soft lavender pink flowers appear in early summer. Excellent in the rock garden or as a drought-tolerant lawn substitute. Can be used in between flagstones and will tolerate moderate foot traffic. Easily divided in spring or early fall, and even small pieces will take root and grow. Evergreen.

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.
