The photo at the top shows a three
month old Elfin Thyme plant that was started in early spring from
one of our 2 3/4 inch containers. It measures about 4 inches across.
Elfin thyme flowers are the typical lilac color of most thymes. It
blooms in early summer rather than in spring like many ground cover
thymes. Elfin Thyme, like most thymes, needs at least five hours
of sun a day to keep it from reaching for light and getting leggy.
Below is the same Elfin Thyme plant
the following year. This is actually two plants that have grown together.
Like all thymes if it has something to climb up, it will.
