Thyme, Creeping 'Elfin' (Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin')
- One of the first thymes to flower in spring, this charming and reliable cultivar bursts into bloom in early spring with pink flowers. Its fuzzy olive-green foliage forms a mat 1 to 2 inches tall and 18 inches wide. Fragrant foliage is deer-proof. It spills gracefully over stone walls or planters and is excellent between pavers where occasional foot traffic releases its distinct aroma.
- Thrives in any dry, well-drained spot in full sun.
- 3-4 inches tall x 18" wide. Evergreen.
