‘Silver King’ Creeping Thyme (Thymus x citriodorus 'Silver King') provides visual interest alongside a fresh fragrance. Thyme has been cultivated for centuries, beloved for its strong scent, diverse uses, and easy-growing, low-maintenance nature. Once established, Thyme requires almost no care. This spreader prefers full sun and fast-draining soils and is also drought-tolerant. Thanks to its essential oils, it's deer-resistant, generally pest-free, and may even help to repel mosquitos. Plant it in mass along walkways or use it as a lawn alternative in low-traffic areas. Thyme is native to Greenland, Europe, Asia, and Northeast Africa.
