Fragrant foliage, too!

Early summer brings a blanket of stunning crimson flowers on this semi-evergreen groundcover!
Red Creeping Thyme offers brilliant crimson flowers to carpet the early-summer garden floor. A low, mat-forming plant with fragrant foliage as well as beautiful blooms, it is easy and irresistible in any sunny setting!

Just a few inches high, the plant is densely covered with tiny, dark green, shiny leaves that are intensely aromatic when crushed -- plant them between paving stones and enjoy their fragrance every time you pass by.

Evergreen in the South, semi-evergreen in the North. Plant 12 to 15 inches apart in full sun and well-drained soil. Zones 4-8.
