More Information

Description Red creeping thyme (Thymus praecox) quickly spreads to form a lush carpet of small leaves and vibrant blooms! Soft green foliage is aromatic when touched or crushed. Hundreds of saturated pink and red flowers add even more fragrance as they bloom in early summer. The flowers are rich in nectar and are a magnet for butterflies. Keep your garden low maintenance with red creeping thyme! It grows densely, crowding out unwanted weeds as it spreads. The only requirement this deer-resistant and hardy ground cover has is a sunny spot with good drainage. Try planting it along pathways or as a lawn substitute for small spaces. Buying landscape plugs? Here is how much area they will cover: 6" spacing of 32 landscape plugs covers 6 sq feet 8" spacing covers 7.5 sq feet 10" spacing covers 11 sq feet 12" spacing covers 16 sq feet Details Botanical name: Thymus praecox 'Coccineus'
Common name: Red creeping thyme
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 2-4" X 12"
Flower color: Dark pink
Foliage color: Green
Bloom season: Summer
Features: Space savers, rabbit & deer resistant, heat tolerant, drought tolerant, cold tolerant
Uses: Alpine, container gardening, cottage gardening, edging, ground cover, naturalizing, rock garden, small spaces, underplanting
How To Grow Soil: Grows well in well-draining soils.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) is needed for best foliage and bloom.
Water: Keep soil moist but not wet as plants establish. Once established, it tolerates dry conditions.
Spacing: 12-18"
Fertilizing: If desired, feed plants lightly in spring with fish fertilizer or any liquid plant food.
Winterizing: Cover the plants with lightweight mulch to protect the plants over the winter. Prune away winter-killed stems in spring.
Maintenance & pruning: Shear back spent flowers. In the South, plants may "mug off" in the summer heat and humidity. Cut the plant back, and you'll see new growth when the weather cools.  Can be divided during the spring months.

Not sure yet

The plants arrived quickly and looked very healthy, no complaints there. They have only been in the ground for about one month and it has been dry here so I'm not sure how they will do. So far they are just staying alive, next year will tell.

All my plants died

I have gardened for years and bough 25 boxes of thyme, all of which died. Not a watering issue, the season was not dry.

Disappointing

It came in quickly and looked full, but as soon as planted they’re all brown. Disappointing to say the least; hoping they come back next spring…
