Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin'

Elfin Thyme

Elfin Thyme is an evergreen herb.  Tiny, grey-green leaves.  Tolerates dry conditions once established.  Best with average water and well drained soil - even rocky, sandy, poor soil.  Will cascade over walls and grows well between stones.  Elfin Thyme blooms lavender, early Summer.   Will tolerate light foot traffic making it a good choice between stepping stones.  Cut back first of Spring and trim lightly after blooming to keep it neat and to remove woody stems.  Mature height 1"-2", spreads 12"-18"
