Lamiaceae > Thymus pseudolanuginosus var. ,

The low growing creeping thyme with hairy or wooolly leaves and stems, formerly known as Thymus pseudolanuginosus and also known as T. lanuginosus and commonly called woolly thyme, should now be regarded as T. serpyllum, as it is next to impossible to delineate between hairy and non-hairy creeping thymes. The leaves in wild creeping thyme vary from slightly glabrous, to sparsely covered in white hairs, or thickly covered on both surfaces, with the margins ciliate, or just ciliate at the base. Leaf hairiness could be an adaptation to climatic conditions particularly in mountainous regions. It is often grown in rock gardens where it can form extensive mats. It is of unknown origin.
