Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin'

A fairy garden favorite.  Tiny green (with a hint of gray) leaves are smooth with a few tiny whiskers along the edges.  Forms a dense carpet in the garden.  Pretty light lavender-pink flowers bloom in summer.  Plants make a slight mound in the center and creep outwards along the soil.  Foliage grows less than an inch high, but flowers grow taller.  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 4-8, with good drainage.  For outdoor gardens only.
