There are a great many selections of Thyme grown in gardens, all of them with edible leaves and some degree of fragrance and flavor. This is a low, creeping variety, the foliage is dark green, smothered by bright magenta-pink flowers in early summer. Can be used in between stepping stones and will tolerate light traffic. Creeping Thyme is easily divided in spring or early fall, and even small pieces will take root and grow. Drought tolerant once established. Attractive to butterflies. Evergreen.
