Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin'
|Description||Spectacular ornamental herb with purple blooms and tiny evergreen leaves. Great for filling between stepping stones as it will tolerate light foot traffic and dry conditions. Works well in mixed beds or in pots when allowed to trail over the edges. Showy flowers and aromatic foliage.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Slow grower to 1 to 2 in. tall, 4 to 8 in. wide.|
|Special Features||Attracts Butterflies|
|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Care||Thrives in average to very lean, neutral to alkaline soils. As a groundcover, space 6 to 12 in. apart; closer for faster fill. Trim lightly, just after flowering. In early spring, shear old foliage to one-half inch. Feed with an all-purpose fertilizer.|
