We have fallen in love with this amazing, well-behaved, rock garden-sized, evergreen groundcover. Paronychia 'Crème de la Crème' is an amazing white-edged leaf selection of the Alp/Pyrenees native false thyme discovered at Edelweiss Perennials. Paronychia 'Crème de la Crème' forms a 1" tall x 18" wide, perfectly manicured groundcover, densely clothed with teeny tiny leaves, each bordered in cream. The corymbs of tiny white flowers just top the foliage in late spring, but are virtually invisible against the amazing foliage. Tolerant of extreme drought, Paronychia 'Crème de la Crème' has also tolerated our humid summers and record setting year of 60" rainfall, which are the demise of many true thymes. We cannot recommend this highly enough!
