Thymus 'Coccineus Group' (Thyme)

Great as a scented ground cover

Tiny, deep pink, tubular flowers appear in summer and are highly attractive to bees. This thyme is an excellent ground cover which forms a flat mat of glossy, blue-green leaves. Great for growing between paving where it will get light traffic that will release its lovely scent whenever it is trodden on.
