Thyme, Major Red

Thymus coccineus 'Major Red'

Tiny leaves and a creeping habit make this plant excellent as ground cover, particularly between paving stones. Small, beautiful flowers are a lovely highlight, creating a miniature avalanche of color as the plant sweeps over garden's or containers edge or down a foundation stone step. Tolerates poor, dry soil.
