elfin thyme

Low, tight, evergreen thyme 1 inch high and slowly spreading, sometimes forms hummocks. Tiny lavender pink flowers in summer. It can be grown in full sun or light shade but needs good drainage and not too much water. Quite deer resistant. Excellent in rock gardens, containers, between stepping stones.
