Description / Thymus 'Coccineus' Red Creeping Thyme

There is a lot to love about Red Creeping Thyme. In early summer Red Creeping Thyme covers the floor of your garden in a sea of magenta or lavender-red. 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. You'll find yourself in wonderland with the thick carpet of fragrant vivid blooms carpeting your garden.

Evergreen in the South, semievergreen in the North. Plant 12 to 15 inches apart in full sun and well-drained soil. They will start blooming in late spring, reaching 12-18 inches wide and only a couple of inches tall.
