When you hear the term 'groundcover' we don't often think of phenomenal floral displays - yet that is exactly what's in store when you grow this red creeping thyme! This variety forms a dense, attractive carpet of aromatic green foliage, but its true beauty lies in its incredibly vivid magenta blooms which open in summer. To top it off, the flowers are adored by butterflies so they are an excellent reliable addition to pollinator friendly gardens.

Possibly the most carefree thing you'll ever grow, this groundcover thrives in places few other plants dare to tread. Dry, sandy and rocky soils are its playground and it will flourish even under various other environmental stresses such as deer and air pollution. Creeping thyme is even evergreen in mild climates. While it isn't particularly bothered by insects or disease it should be noted that this variety hates too much moisture. Avoid overwatering at all costs as the only thing that can damage this plant is root rot caused by slow-draining, swampy soil. Pack of 6 9cm plants.
