Creeping Thyme

Creeping Thyme

Sometimes called mother-of-thyme or wild thyme, creeping thyme is shorter and has a milder flavor than the more famous variety with which it shares a name.

Why We Love It

Forget lawns-- creeping thyme is a drought-tolerant, bee-friendly ground cover that smells incredible and can handle being walked on.


Give it the time of its life by keeping it in well-drained soil with some sun each day.

Thyme Cures All

A centuries old remedy, creeping thyme is used to improve mouth health, relieve respiratory ailments, alleviate headaches, and to soothe the digestive system.

Thyme Warp

Victorians believed growing patches of thyme meant that faeries had recently danced there.
