About Thymus: Thymus is perfect as a low spreading groundcover in rock & alpine gardens, troughs, rock walls, in between flagstones or simply planted in the garden. Many varieties are pleasantly scented and will release their fragrance if tread upon lightly. Thymus vulgaris is culinary thyme but most all forms are highly flavored and can be used in cooking.
