Description


Thymus serpyllum coccineus 'Creeping Red' (Thyme) Scented, edible groundcover A creeping evergreen perennial, often referred to as a subshrub, with very small, aromatic dark green leaves that have the familiar and much-loved scent of thyme. Thymus serpyllum coccineau 'Creeping Red', as the name suggests, has a creeping, ground covering habit. It will spread in between paving, across rock gardens and over pots to add interest all year round with its foliage. In June and July, it then bears a multitude of 2-lipped, deep red flowers which can cover the foliage and add low level colour wherever 'Creeping Red' is planted. Prefers a moist, well-drained soil with a south or east facing aspect in full sun. Ideal for cutting and drought tolerant, your plant will naturalise readily and grow to a height of 20cm in flower with a spread of up to 50cm. Resilient enough to cope with light foot traffic when planted in between paving - it will even release its scent when lightly crushed. A hardy plant (H5) which will tolerate temperatures as low as -15 C when in a sufficiently well-drained soil.
