Description

The Creeping Thyme is a great plant for when you don't have thyme on your hands but want a pretty groundcover that is also edible. Great in between pavers, as an edging plant, or in pots, this baby will not disappoint. She has tiny dark green leaves that grow on trailing stems and tiny purple flowers that appear in spring through to summer (what wonderful thyme of the year). She is bee attracting and is a great herb to use in cooking or as a medicinal herb.
