More About Elfin Thyme...

One from our 'Toe Tickler' collection, 'Elfin' is one of the best of the creeping aromatic evergreen thymes. In summer, pretty, tiny lavender flowers nearly cover the groundhugging mats of foliage that grow to about 1 or 2 inches in height.

Elfin Thyme is easy to grow in the right conditions. It grows best in light, dry, well-drained soil and full sun. A little shade is okay.

Elfin forms a dense mat making it an excellent selection as a groundcover.  It is also ideal for planting between the gaps of stepping or paving stones.
