Purple Carpet Creeping Thyme is smothered in stunning purple flowers at the ends of the stems from early to mid summer. Its attractive tiny fragrant round leaves remain dark green in color throughout the year.

It is a dense herbaceous evergreen perennial with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It brings an extremely fine and delicate texture to the garden composition and should be used to full effect. This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. Deer don’t particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
