Greater Wild Thyme or Mother of Thyme
A low growing mat forming plant with pinkish to purplish colored flowers in late spring and early summer. Grows 2 to 8 inches tall and 12 inches wide. Nice for a rock wall. Fast growing and hardy and like most of the Tymes likes a dry, well drained soil that is not rich in nitrogen. The some what woody plants can stand some foot traffic too and release a scent when crushed.
