Technically, this is not an orchard companion plant, but as the name implies, it is something to walk on. Magic Carpet forms a tight, ground-hugging mat to fill in pathways between raised beds. It tolerates trampling and drought, making it the ideal choice for a low, no-mow ground cover. Aromatic, evergreen foliage stays at 7 cm (2-3") tall and spreads to 40 cm (16") wide. Magic Carpet is adorned with masses of tiny, pink blossoms during the summer.
