Thyme, Creeping

Thymus serpyllum

Perennial (Zone 3)

Full to Partial Sun

6”-12” Tall

Plant 8”-12” apart

Grown much more for its creeping ability than culinary usage, creeping thyme can be used as a wonderful ground cover for in the garden or on walkways, and along walls.  It can withstand light foot traffic, and will also make the pleasant contribution of releasing its sweet aroma in the air when traveled upon. It is edible, but not as potent a variety as German Winter or Orange Thyme.
