    Forming an evergreen mat of aromatic mid-green foliage, this creeping thyme also produces lots of small white flowers in the summer. A wonderful choice for softening the edges of a path, where it will release its scent each time it is bruised or brushed past, it also looks great in a pot on a sunny patio.

  • Garden care: After flowering cut back hard using garden shears to retain a neat compact shape. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring.
