Silver Needle Thyme is one of the most unusal
ground cover thymes. Even though it may look like a stiff little juniper
twig, it is actually soft to walk on.
And, unlike many of the other
Ground Cover Thymes that are grassy
green, Silver Needle Thyme has a soft silvery green hue. It blooms in
early spring and is covered in dark lilac flowers. The photo below was taken
from above the plant so it is hard to tell that the abundant flowers are
really short and tight to the ground.
Silver Needle Thyme is also great in a
cascading over a short wall or edging.
This plant is often
available in plug trays. These trays hold 128
of all the same plant. They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of
space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by an inch. Check here to see
Silver Needle Thyme Plug Trays are available.
