Thyme, Creeping Red (Thymus praecox 'Coccineus')

  • Sale
  • Regular price $14.95

  • Use:
    • This Creeping Thyme makes a beautiful ground cover with deep, fuchsia-red blooms. Perfect for filling between stepping stones, as it will tolerate light foot traffic. Adds elegance to mixed beds or pots when allowed to trail over the edges. Patios, walks, rock gardens, stone walls, and pond borders all benefit from its creeping, cascading habit. It spills gracefully over stone walls and is excellent between pavers where occasional foot traffic releases its distinct aroma. Deer hate it.
  • Soil/Exposure:
    • Thrives in any dry, well-drained spot in full sun. 
  • Zones: 
    • 4-9 
  • Growth: 
    • Evergreen, 4inches tall x 18-24 inches wide.

I tried planting it in an area that wouldn't get dug up. The grass around it is growing faster than the thyme haha. Which barely had grass before planting. Can't wait to see progress.

Plants were a little delayed due to USPS and the pandemic; but were packaged well and full of life! Super happy with my purchase. Thank you, I will be back!
