Creeping Thyme, also known as ‘Mother of Thyme,’ is an easily grown, spreading thyme variety. It has a nice gray-green foliage and beautiful pink flowers. So this means both texture and color. It is also a very low maintenance plant that is drought tolerant. It will thrive perfectly between flagstones.

    I have to say great article! I work in a greenhouse and sell all of these so thank you! However I noticed your photo ID of “pratia” is actually a photo of Bugleweed botanical-Ajuga, either mint chip or chocolate chip variety. May help to fix this so as not to confuse those searching it out in the retail world.

    You also spelled ‘ pieces’ wrong. You used Peace’s.

    Looking for a good ground cover that can survive the Florida heat even in the shade.

    Boy I have money wort and it can take over. I am forever cutting it back from other plants in the area and pathways. But I do not have to weed a large area under same maple and azela bushes. The money wort grows dense enough to keep weeds away.

    I was struck by how similar-looking Baby Tears is to the common chickweed, which is also a nutritious edible. After reading this enjoyable article, I’m tempted to stop pulling up the chickweed and encourage it instead!
