(Creeping Thyme) A low carpet of variegated color is what you will see with 'Highland Cream' Creeping Thyme. The two-toned foliage of green with yellow edges will handle light foot traffic. In midsummer, tiny pink flowers will emerge and cover this Thyme. 'Highland Cream' grows best in full sun to part shade location, and likes good drainage. 'Highland Cream' is a low maintenance perennial that will blanket those difficult-to-grow areas, like rock gardens and slopes. Creeping Thyme is a deer resistant plant.
