Thymus serpyllum, known by the common names of Breckland thyme, Breckland wild thyme, wild thyme, creeping thyme, or elfin thyme is a species of flowering plant in the mint family Lamiaceae, native to most of Europe and North Africa.
It grows slowly, but result in dense carpets that can even withstand some foot traffic.
Creeping and mounding variants of T. serpyllum are used as border plants and ground cover around gardens and stone paths.
The less space between leaves, the slower your thyme will spread.
Longer segments mean faster growth.
Generally, Creeping Thyme takes one year to get established, and then begins to spread in its second season; can withstand periods of drought although moderate watering helps it perform its best.
In addition, Thymes don't require fertilizer or pruning.
