There are a great many selections of Thyme grown in gardens, all of them with some degree of spicy fragrance. This flat-growing Thyme features fragrant dark green leaves, smothered by bright magenta-red flowers in early summer. A strong grower, ideal as a drought-tolerant lawn substitute or for planting between flagstones, tolerating moderate traffic. Creeping Thyme is easily divided in spring or early fall, and even small pieces will take root and grow. Attractive to butterflies. Evergreen.
