Thymus serpyllum 'Pink Chintz' (Creeping Thyme)

Thumbnail Photo


Creeping Thyme is a sun-loving herb valued as an ornamental groundcover. This selection forms a very low carpet of fuzzy, dark green leaves which resemble those of Woolly Thyme. From early thru midsummer, flowers of a unique shade of salmon-pink cover the foliage. Lovely between stones on a path or cascading over walls. A vigorous grower.
