(1-2” tall x 8-12” wide) The versatility of 'Highland Cream' Creeping Thyme cannot be understated. It’s a tough evergreen perennial for tough spots, mounding and trailing in rocky, sandy soils where drought can be an issue. And, it’s a gorgeous variegated groundcover that is covered in white-pink blooms in early summer that attract pollinators all day long. Use it to edge your pathways, where it can tolerate moderate foot traffic, or along a stone wall, where its creamy-green tiny leaves will be shown off to best advantage. The keys to growing 'Highland Cream' Creeping Thyme well are sunshine and drainage. Make sure you have got plenty of both and you will rejoice in the vigor and beauty of this fabulous, versatile perennial herb!
