These little patches of Leprechaun Thyme were planted from plugs three years
ago on six inch centers. The bright green leaves are closely spaced and held
close to the ground. Because the leaves are so tiny and the
stem segments so short Leprechaun Thyme spreads slowly, which makes it an
ideal choice for in
between stepping stones.
A more rapidly growing ground cover thyme like
Pink Lemonade Thyme,
would have been a better choice for this location.
Leprechaun Thyme has a light lemony scent which is unusual among
ground cover thymes which for the most part have no scent.
