Thymus praecox serpyllum 'Coccineus'

Red Flowering Mother of Thyme

Watch video on YouTube

Tiny glossy green leaves are mat forming at 3”. This groundcover is perfect for rock, trough, and alpine gardens, works between pavers, and has rosy-purple flowers in mid-summer. Excellent drainage and lots of sun are a must. Too much rain can be detrimental; water has a hard time evaporating from the leaves causing fast rot.
