Creeping red thyme: Thymus serpyllum 'Coccineus'

This variety has dark green, glossy leaves and is covered in spectacular crimson flowers in June. Red thyme has the most vivid flowers imaginable! If trimmed back immediately after flowering there will be more flowers by late summer.

In autumn and winter the leaves take on an attractive bronze colouration as the weather turns cold.
