Discover Thymus serpyllum, commonly known as Creeping Thyme, Wild Thyme, or Breckland Thyme. This flowering plant belongs to the mint family Lamiaceae and is native to most of Europe and North Africa. Recognized by its low, usually prostrate subshrub structure, it grows to 6 inches tall with creeping stems up to 4 inches long. This hardy plant flourishes in thin soils, making it a versatile addition to rocky outcrops, hills, roadside and riverside sand banks. With evergreen leaves ranging from 3-8 mm long, and alluring flowers that bloom in either lilac, pink-purple, magenta or a rare white hue, this plant emits a delightful aroma that ranges from heavily herbal to lightly lemony. Creeping Thyme is a perfect choice for border plants or ground cover around gardens and stone paths, thriving well amidst pedestrian traffic. It can also replace regular lawns in areas with low to moderate foot traffic due to its tolerance for low water and poor soils. Each plant forms an exquisite mat-like pattern and takes well to mowing. It's a perfect choice for those looking to build a green carpet around their paths or yards, requiring only 1 lb. per 40,000 sq feet for an effective lush lawn.
