Creeping Thyme

Thymus serpyllum. Known as Wild Thyme or Mother of Thyme, Creeping Thyme is a brilliant evergreen perennial that creeps its way through garden borders, rock gardens and stone walls. Growing just 2" to 4" tall with a lemony fragrance, it has slightly hairy, deep green leaves through which tiny pinkish to pale purple flowers bloom. Deer- and rodent-resistant, Creeping Thyme is drought-tolerant once established and really tough. It can handle being walked on, mowed or ignored, and even then it may self-sow and creep some more. Hardy evergreen perennial. HZ: 4-8. (OP.)
