Thymus praecox 'Elfin'
‘Elfin’ is a fine-textured, low tuft-forming variety with gray-green foliage and soft pink flowers. Soft pink flowers appear between June and July.
Most Thymes do well in full sun, take lots of foot traffic, and are the plant of choice for walkway crevices, rocky areas, or even a lawn substitute. All need good drainage.
