'Highland Cream' has fabulous cream variegated foliage creating a glowing mat of tiny leaves. Pale pink flowers in summer. A favourite of ours. Creeping thymes take the wonderful aroma of the herb and put it into the ornamental garden. Use it in full sun as a groundcover or tuck it around stepping stones or in the rock garden. Easy to grow where drainage is good. Popular with bees.
