Thyme ~ Thymus serpyllum ~ var. Magic carpet
This gorgeous mini creeping thyme features deep green foliage and has a soft scent of lemon when stepped on.
It makes a striking lawn substitute exploding in late spring with carmine-pink flowers.
Imagine! A lawn you can eat! Like most Thymes, the leaves are edible whilst the flowers attract butterflies.
Used as an alternative lawn, it can tolerate light traffic. Thyme must have good drainage, is drought tolerant and must have full sun.
