Thymus General Information

Creeping Thyme is a valuable plant in the perennial world. All are low mats of evergreen texture and scent, useful between stepping stones and in cracks. All prefer good drainage. Flowers and foliage color are additional assets.

Thymus Plant Care

Will tolerate most soils provided they are well-drained (especially in winter). Division can be done in spring or fall. Can be divided and replanted to regenerate growth or dig and transplant a few rooted sections to establish a new area. Cut off any winter damage to new growth in early spring. Any heavy pruning should be done before August. Evergreen in winter.
