Wooly thyme Thymus pseudolanuginosus is an aromatic herb that is grown as a sturdy ground cover rather than for culinary use. It thrives in U. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 8. Unlike many thyme varieties, wooly thyme has almost no fragrance, but its creeping growth and pale, pink flowers make up for its lack of aroma.

Wooly thyme grows less than 1 inch above the ground, spreading in a thick, sprawling mat. Small, tubular, pink blooms appear above the leaves, which are covered with dense hair. The flowers arrive in late spring to summer, and attract butterflies and bees. Like all thyme species, wooly thyme is an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance plant. To ensure prolific blooms, plant it in average soil in full sunlight.
Water it at least weekly until it becomes established so the soil remains moist 2 inches beneath the surface.
Gravel or sandy soil that drains quickly is ideal. It tolerates dry soil, and is deer and frost resistant. Avoid overwatering wooly thyme, which can cause root rot. Water established plants only during very dry conditions, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
