A profuse bloomer, Pink Chintz Thyme (Thymus serpyllum 'Pink Chintz') is a dwarf aromatic, blanketed with flushes of salmon pink flowers from July to August. The foliage grows to 4” tall, and remains low and dense to the ground. A wonderful ground cover, this pink creeping thyme spreads to 12”, and its woolly greyish green leaves exude a minty scent when trod on. (Pink Chintz Creeping Thyme is not a culinary herb.)

Wonderful as filler between stepping stones, along paths, spilling out of containers, and cascading over ledges and rocks in alpine and rock gardens. Likes sunny areas, and moist to dry soils that are well drained. Pink Chintz Creeping Thyme grows quickly and is very long lived (up to 10 years) under the most favourable conditions.

This pink wild thyme is drought, pollution and disease resistant. It is usually passed up by rabbits and deer, for more delectable treats.
