Groundcovers You Can Step On | High Country Gardens

✨One of the best low growing ground covers, Thymus serpyllum forms evergreen dense cushions 5 to 10cm (2 to 4in) tall. The stems creep along the ground rather than rise vertically and grow 10 to 30cm (4 to 12in) long.

📣Blooming from May through to August with clusters of flowers in shades of purple-violet, the plants flower so prolifically, you can hardly see the evergreen leaves below.  There are very few ground covers that can be walked-on, but creeping thyme is one of them. It is suitable as a lawn substitute in small areas, an ideal ground cover to use between stepping stones or near to patios and walkways. Scented flowers.

Why Creeping Thyme Is an Optimal Ground Cover?

  • It grows relatively quickly.
  • It can tolerate foot traffic.
  • It's perennial, returning every year and requiring much less maintenance than grass.
  • It does not grow very tall—only about two to four inches maximum, so it won’t steal the show from other plants or shrubs.
  • It's ideal for gardeners who are worried about pests, pets, or kids traipsing through their yard and holds up very well if walked on.
  • It's deer and rabbit-resistant.
  • Bees are attracted to it.
  • All varieties have a nice fragrance.
  • Creeping thyme grows in USDA hardiness zones 2 through 9.
