Groundcovering Tapestry of Succulents and Thyme

This ground-covering tapestry of succulents and thyme looks great almost year-round, but is especially beautiful in early to midsummer when the red creeping thyme is covered in reddish purple blooms and alive with bees and other pollinators. Covering the ground with plants is like a living mulch; once established, a dense groundcover of plants provides excellent weed suppression and helps the soil retain moisture.
