Elfin thyme is the lowest growing of our ground cover thymes. We often use it between stepping stones due to it's wear tolerance, low water needs and it doesn't creep over the stones as much as other varieties. Thyme is actually a succulent but you probably never noticed due to the tiny leaves, this makes it quite drought tolerant once established. Also suitable as a no-mow lawn alternative or a general purpose ground cover to suppress weeds. The lavender color flowers will attract pollinators in the summer.
