Thymus serpyllum is a creeping dwarf evergreen shrub with woody stems and a taproot. It forms matlike plants that root from the nodes of the squarish, limp stems. Creeping and mounding variants of Thymus serpyllum are used as border plants and ground cover around gardens and stone paths. Thymus serpyllum is an important nectar source plant for honeybees.
