Thymus Red Creeping Thyme

THYMUS RED CREEPING THYME

Thymus praecox 'Coccineus'
Red Creeping Thyme
Soft aromatic foliage is covered with bright, reddish pink flowers that fade to light pink throughout the summer.  Deep green foliage gives way to bronze as weather turns cold. Very versatile perennial that will cover dry slopes, creep around roses or work perfectly as a lawn substitute. This plant needs sharp drainage to succeed. Over watering will impair growth. Very drought tolerant.

Tips from Fran
Thymus Red Creeping holds its own in any landscape, that why it’s on our Tough Ten list. Very versatile around pavers, works excellent as a lawn replacement plant and will cover any rockery area you have. It works well all over the US and pretty much can take whatever situation you have. Definitely a “go-to” plant if I ever saw one.
