A very pretty ground cover thyme to use as an understory plant for your miniature garden bed. Expect this thyme to look more like a short shrub, rather than low-growing ground cover.
Looks great along a pathway or at the edge of the miniature patio, or plant it to trail down the edge of a pot or rock wall.
Pink Chintz Thyme has a deep, rich green colored leaves tinged in red, with a deep red colored stem. A very classy combination. Dark pink flowers in mid summer.
Trim it back from your wee patios and pathways by "feathering" the line of cut. Cutting the stems all at once looks too abrupt in the mini garden.
