Comments: Thymus serpyllum is also known as Creeping Thyme and Mother of Thyme. Love that aromatic foliage and small bluish-purple flowers. Elfin Thyme forms a dense mat of only 1 inches or 2 inches high to 24 inches across. Plants in 3.5 inch pots provide faster coverage than creeping thyme plugs.
Thyme repels cabbage worm, so is a fine companion plant for broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard, horseradish, kale, and kohlrabi. Thyme is also a fine companion plant for potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, and strawberries.
