Just about the lowest-growing groundcover in our garden, it's a wonderfully woolly cousin of creeping thyme. Planted in the front area of our rock garden, it forms a thin carpet that cascades down the front rocks, onto our front walkway. It can get a little ratty, and benefits from some shearing back once in a while.
