Creeping thyme, occasionally called 'Mother of Thyme,' is a low-growing groundcover herb that is hardy enough to be used as a lawn substitute. Similar to other varieties of thyme, creeping thyme is edible, with a minty, herbal flavor perfect for seasoning or teas. Purple flowers in the summertime are also highly attractive to a number of pollinators.
Commonly used in a variety of culinary ways for its minty, herbal flavor profile, thyme is most popular in soups, roasted vegetables, and in compound herb butters.
Mature plants typically reach a very low height of only 3-6" with a slow, creeping spread to about 12".
Creeping thyme is perennial, and will last through hot, dry summers, and cold winters.
Plants are available in 4" pots beginning the week of 4/1.
