Common name creeping thyme
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers purple (summer)
Size 4"
Light sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

We have several varieties of creeping thyme in the garden. Some grow lower than others; none are particularly strong-scented, but they serve a useful purpose, either as expansive mats of summer color, or as filler in between our pathway stones. Easy to multiply by division.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
