It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 1 foot to 2 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun and grows best when planted in sand soil that is well drained. In the spring Elfin Creeping Thyme produces pink flowers.

    Elfin Creeping Thyme can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings and also in rock or xeriscape gardens.


    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.
