Red Creeping Thyme – Thymus Coccineus

Creeping thyme will crowd out unwanted weeds and thrive in poor soil where other groundcovers fail. An ideal lawn substitute for small spaces.

Creeping thyme can be walked on.  It is in the mint family, and when it is stepped on, a minty smell is released.

Slow grower to 3 to 6 in. tall, 12 to 18 in. wide.
