Elfin Thyme – Thymus serpyllum ‘Elfin’

Regular price $5.99

A tried and true favorite 'mini garden bedding plant.' This is a slow growing ground cover and a favorite for miniature gardening. It grows in a tight mat with tiny leaves that gently mound and spread. 

Plant Elfin Thyme as an under-story plant for the miniature garden bed, in between pavers or as a lawn substitute. 

This one can be trimmed into a very cute little hedge. It can be kept trimmed to follow along a pathway or at the edge of a miniature patio as well.

For a more-natural look, trim it back from your wee patios or pathways by "feathering" the line of cut.
