Red Creeping Thyme is a creeping perennial that makes a beautiful ground cover. The deep, lavender-red blooms are a welcome sight in the summer garden. It is perfect for growing between stepping stones, as it tolerates light foot traffic and has a wonderful fragrance when leaves are crushed underfoot. Beautiful when allowed to spill over the edges of pots or a stone wall. Grow Thyme in a pot on your outdoor table, crush a stem, and not be bothered by insects.

Butterflies and pollinators adore Red Creeping Thyme when in flower. Thyme is often used as an alternative to grass in lawns. Creeping Thyme is a very drought-tolerant plant and is used frequently in xeriscaping.
