Creeping thyme is a low-growing, spreading perennial plant that is commonly used as a groundcover or border plant in landscaping. It is known for its dense mats of tiny, fragrant leaves and clusters of tiny, purple or pink flowers that bloom in summer. Creeping thyme is drought-tolerant, easy to care for, and attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies. It can also be used in cooking or as a herbal tea, as the leaves contain essential oils with a strong, aromatic flavor. Overall, creeping thyme is a versatile and attractive plant that can be used in a variety of garden settings.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Creeping Thyme prefers well-draining soil and does not like to be overwatered. Water the plant deeply once a week during the growing season, and reduce watering in the winter months.
  • Maintenance: Creeping Thyme is a low-maintenance plant and does not require regular care.
  • Pruning: In the growing season, trim the tips of the stems to encourage bushier growth and more blooms. After the plant has finished blooming, trim back the spent flowers to prevent self-seeding and to promote new growth.
  • (Optional):Fertilizer: Creeping Thyme does not require regular fertilization, but it can benefit from a light application of a balanced fertilizer in the spring.
