This is Thyme.
No. I’m not going to insert the appropriate, cheesy quote about “Time” and “Thyme” in the garden. This ain’t that kinda blog. Ya. I said ain’t.
This is ‘Elfin’ Thyme to be exact, and works great as an all purpose ground cover and in between stepping stones as shown.
This cultivar is a derivative of culinary Thyme, but doesn’t seem to have that same cooking quality. It grows quick and with ease, with relatively little to no care and little water.
My favorite uses of this ground cover is in between stepping stones for a fragrant pathway, or in large clusters around trees or other native grasses.
