RED CREEPING THYME 10cm (3 1/2") pot


187 in stock

This particular variety of creeping thyme features masses of delicate, yet magnificent magenta blossoms from early to mid summer. The aromatic foliage can be used in soups and sauces, but the main use for this drought tolerant plant is for a low-growing ground cover that can handle some foot traffic. It grows relatively fast, even in part shade, up to 45cm (18") wide, but only 5cm (2") high. This makes it ideal for using around the base of tall perennials and shrubs or for filling in empty spaces along a garden path.
(Thymus praecox 'Coccineus')

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
