Thyme – Creeping

Thyme – Creeping

An Aromatic Mat Creeping Thyme, Thymus praecox ‘Coccineus’, has lovely scented foliage that creates a low growing mat that is covered with hundreds of rosy-red flowers in summer. A strong grower, ‘Coccineus’ is ideal as a drought tolerant lawn substitute, or for planting between flagstones. It tolerates moderate foot traffic. ‘Coccineus’ is easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. It also tolerates drought and poor soils or somewhat low fertility. Loose, sandy or rocky soils with excellent drainage are best. It will also add elegance to mixed beds or pots when allowed to trail over the edges. Creeping thyme is easily divided in spring or early fall, and even small pieces will take root and grow. It is attractive to butterflies with its flowers and lemon-scented blooms. This plant is a fast spreader and it is ideal for a sunny, dry area groundcover! *Rosy Red Flowers in Spring *Aromatic Mat Type Groundcover *Full Sun and Foot Traffic
