Thymus serpyllum - (Creeping Thyme / Wild Thyme) 

 

An evergreen creeping plant, forming a dense cushioned carpet, with each plant growing to 5 to 10 cm (2 to 4 inches) tall and spreading up to 30 cm (12 in) wide

The flowers are a striking purple-violet in bloom from May through to August, forming a purple-violet carpet with hardly any green to be seen

 

These plants require no maintenance such as mowing, trimming, watering, feeding or any care – they look after themselves!  The plants are fully hardy to -34°C (-30°F) and are drought-tolerant
