Creeping Thyme-This miniature thyme is incredibly useful. Only 2-3 tall, you can walk in it (releasing its lemony aroma), tuck it between pavers in a garden path, use it as a tidy border or fill in a flower bed. It grows quickly but isn’t pushy, delivers texture, fragrance, and flowers, is great for cooking, and requires almost no care. In summer, it’s covered with tiny purple blooms that attract honeybees and butterflies. It can even be planted as a lawn that never needs mowing.
