Pink flowers adorn this truly diminutive groundcover thyme in summer. We use it as a moss substitute in bonsais. Essential to any hypertufa container or rock garden. Spreads slowly, after many years, it ends up 18”-24” wide, eventually reaching a dizzying height of 3 inches. It mounds as though there was an elf’s home underneath. Compare with ""True Elfin.""
