Thymus praecox ssp. arcticus 'Coccineus' (Creeping Thyme) is considered by many to be the showiest groundcover thyme thanks to its profuse show of rose-red flowers in summer and glossy, dark, evergreen leaves
Impressively xeric with tough woody stems, this vigorous and long-lived cultivar adapts well to most areas of the country
• Beautiful when planted between flagstones, along walkways, and as a waterwise lawn alternative
