Thymus serpyllum ‘Elfin’ (Creeping Thyme) is a dwarf cultivar, one of the lowest growing Thymes available, with tiny rounded leaves that create cushions of aromatic foliage. It can be tucked into stone walls, containers, and gravel or rock gardens. It can handle occasional foot traffic, so plant along walkways or between pavers where it will release a lovely aroma. Plants are covered in pale lavender-pink flowers from late spring into summer, attracting pollinators.
