(2-3” tall x 10-12” wide) With a slightly spicy fragrance hinting at oranges and citrus, low growing 'Spicy Orange' Creeping Thyme will bring a delicious scent to your garden. Thyme collectors won’t want to miss out on this lovely addition to their garden! Plant along pathways, in rock gardens, in containers, and even in window box arrangements. 'Spicy Orange' Creeping Thyme has a mounding habit that takes well to periodic trimmings to keep it neat – otherwise, let it sprawl and enjoy the fact that it can handle moderate foot traffic when placed at the edge of pathways. Light pink flowers are very attractive to pollinators and cover the plant in early summer, while the scent keeps going throughout the year! The key to growing Thyme successfully is to ensure that it is given sharp drainage, and not allowing fallen leaves or other garden detritus to collect on the plant for any length of time. ‘Spicy Orange’ Creeping Thyme is very drought tolerant once established.
