Overview

Primarily used as a ground cover, Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin' (Creeping Thyme) is a dwarf, aromatic sub-shrub forming a tight cushion of tiny, rounded, gray-green leaves. Blooming profusely from early to mid summer, it features clusters of tiny, lavender-pink flowers. Rich in nectar, they attract butterflies.

Maintenance Notes

Creeping phlox is a versatile, easy to grow groundcover for full sun. Gritty, slightly alkaline soils are prefered and good drainage is essential. It's a good idea to shear this plant back and clean up any dead foliage in early summer, just after it's finished blooming. This will produce denser foliage and will encourage it to rebloom. Divisions can be made every few years in summer.
