Thymus serphyllum 9cm

Thymus serpyllum, commonly known as wild thyme or creeping thyme, is a low-growing, herbaceous perennial plant that is native to Europe and Asia. It is valued for its fragrant leaves, which release a strong aroma when crushed.

The plant has small, oval-shaped leaves that are evergreen and glossy, with a grey-green or greenish-purple colour. It produces tiny, tubular, pink or lilac-coloured flowers in early to mid-summer, which are attractive to bees and other pollinators.

Wild thyme typically grows to a height of 5cm and spreads to form a dense mat-like ground cover, making it a popular choice for planting in rock gardens, between pavers, or in other areas where a low-growing plant is desired. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil, and is drought-tolerant once established.
Wild thyme is used as a culinary herb in many Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes, and is particularly popular in French cuisine.
Overall, Thymus serpyllum is a beautiful and versatile plant that is valued for its fragrant leaves, attractive flowers, and ability to form a dense ground cover. Its hardiness, adaptability, and many uses make it a popular choice for gardeners and cooks alike.
