Thymus praecox 'Coccineus'

A traditional fairy garden favorite.  Slender creeping stems hold perfectly shaped little glossy green leaves.  Clusters of bright magenta-red flowers bloom in summer.  Has a low spreading habit, but reaches a couple inches high in bloom.  Nice as a groundcover in the fairy garden and miniature garden as well.  Grow in full sun with well-drained soil.  Drought tolerant once established.  Cold hardy in zones 3-8, with good drainage.  For outdoor gardens only.
