Product Description

Magic Carpet is the perfect ground cover plant! It only reaches 2 – 4 inches tall, and it has masses of tiny pink blooms that are very attractive to butterflies. Magic Carpet is a creeping thyme, or Thymus serpyllum, that is well-suited for edging the flower border or walkway, growing in-between pavers or in the rock garden. It is a hardy, long-lived perennial that establishes easily from seeds. Prepare an outdoor seedbed. All tiny seeds are best established indoors, but can be successfully started outdoors.
