White-Flowered Creeping Thyme (Thymus serpyllum var. 'albus') Herb in 9cm Pot

Thyme is grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant, not only is its foliage is attractive, the flowers are long-lasting and very pretty, and it is drought tolerant - an overall easy-care plant. On top of that it is one of the most useful herbs for the kitchen.

White-Flowered Creeping Thyme reaches a height of 5 cm and flowers in May and June it is very decorative with its small green aromatic leaves which are evergreen given the right conditions, this creeping thyme is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border, or perhaps plant between pavers or at the edge of gravel paths as the aromatic leaves release a lovely scent when trodden on. White-Flowered Creeping Thyme likes a well-drained light soil, which should not be too rich in nutrients as this will only encourage the plant to grow 'leggy' and lose its compact shape, also ensure that the plant is cut back after flowering again to help maintain shape. Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun.

Herb Usage

White-Flowered Creeping Thyme  is an excellent herb for brightening up a herb garden as edging or as a feature plant, it is extensively used as a path thyme between flag stones and within turf. It is often found on rockeries as it is more decorative than culinary.
