Red Creeping Thyme offers brilliant crimson-lavender flowers to carpet the early-summer garden floor. A low, mat-forming plant with fragrant foliage as well as beautiful blooms, it is easy and irresistible in any sunny setting!

Just a few inches high, the plant is densely covered with tiny, dark green, shiny leaves that are intensely aromatic when crushed -- plant them between paving stones and enjoy their fragrance every time you pass by.

As the weather warm, tiny deep pink to red blooms begin to open atop the foliage on this Thyme! An unbelievably bright sight, the blooms completely hide the leaves at the height of their season, creating a living "red carpet"!

Red Creeping Thyme is evergreen in the South and semi-evergreen in parts of the North. Space these plants 12 to 15 inches apart in full sun and well-drained soil; they will quickly fill in, and need little attention from you behind good soil drainage and lots of sunshine!
