Thymus Coccineus Red Creeping Thyme
Add high style to your garden with a carpet of the spicy-scented Red Creeping Thyme. It matures to an evergreen mat of dense leaves. Thousands of magenta-red flowers appear in summer, completely covering its foliage. Fall turns the leaves into shades of bronze and tan.
For a real treat plant Red Creeping Thyme between stones, it seduces everyone with its wonderful aroma. Use it cascading over walls, to edge perennial and herb beds, or at the door to welcome guests with its inviting scent. Thriving in hot dry spots, it works fantastic as a low-maintenance ground cover. To help you achieve a bumper crop of edibles, add it to your veggie garden as an understory plant. Clematis also benefit from it as an understory. It attracts beneficial insects and keeps the soil cool and moist. Its leaves can be dried and used to season soups, sauces, and other culinary delights.
Plant in full sun to light shade in well-draining soil. Occasionally tidy up the plant with a trim.
