Wooly thyme has small, rounded leaves that are woolly and gray-green in color, which gives the plant a soft and velvety texture. The leaves are only about 1/4 inch long and the stems are woody and thin, reaching a height of about 2-3 inches tall. It has tiny pink or purple flowers that bloom in early summer and attract pollinators like bees and butterflies.

This plant is drought-tolerant and prefers well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. It is commonly used as a ground cover, in rock gardens, or as a border plant. It also has a pleasant fragrance and can be used in culinary applications, such as seasoning meats, salads, and soups.

Overall, wooly thyme is a versatile and attractive plant that is well-suited for a variety of garden settings.
