Regular price $10.00 Sale

Thymus praecox 'Coccineus'

 This evergreen perennial makes an excellent summer blooming ground cover. Maturing at 3" or less in height makes this a great choice for plant beds needing color without height.

Creeping thyme prefers well-drained soil and some light afternoon shade. The pleasant fragrance adds to the allure of using this ground cover in the landscape.
