    Elfin Thyme

    • 100% money-back guarantee
    • Free shipping on all orders over $120

    Elfin Thyme, Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin', is a lush, low growing ground cover that has plenty to offer rock gardens, container plantings or a naturalized path. Deep, glossy green leaves are small and sturdy and can withstand light foot traffic for plantings between stepping stones. With a little patience and full to part sun, Elfin Thyme, Thymus serpullum fills in wonderfully and graces your garden with both color and fragrance. As an added delight this evergreen displays an abundance of lilac flowers during summer through early fall.

    Shipping Methods

    Orders will be shipped via FedEx Home Delivery.

    Orders are generally in route for 2-5 business days (depending on where you live).

    We are sticklers about packaging and shipping your order in a way that guarantees healthy plants upon arrival. If plants are damaged on arrival, just let us know and we'll send you new ones or offer a full refund.

    All of our plants are container grown and shipped with the soil and roots fully intact. We DO NOT ship your plants bare-root. Being shipped as a containered plant greatly reduces the risk of the plant not surviving the transit to your home.
