Creeping Thyme
Thymus serpyllum

Also known as 'Mother of Thyme', 'Creeping Thyme' is a low growing (three to six inches) plant. Because of its compact, spreading growth habit, it is often grown between the stones or bricks of garden paths for its beauty and sweet aroma that is released when walked upon. We plant it in these types of places here on the farm. Once established, Creeping Thyme is drought tolerant and requires little to moderate amounts of water. Prefers well drained soil.

A native to Northern Europe, it is similar in plant structure to 'Garden Thyme', but tends to be lower growing (shorter stems between leaves) and spreading in habit. A perennial in USDA zones 4 to 9, it can be propagated by division of after the plants are mature. Each packet contains 0.1 gram of seeds, which is about 600 seeds.
Medicinal Herbs Historically it has been used for its decongestant, antiseptic, cough remedy and a digestive aid properties.
My wife's favorite
She loves creeping thyme for the fragrance, I love how easy it is to grow. I filled in a rocky bank with the stuff and it didn't require any attention from me after it got established. It seems happy there, so I look for it to return this year.
