Answer: There are only a few plants that are low-growing enough to fit in the spaces between pavers without creeping up high enough to trip you as you walk. Thymus praecox acticus (Wooly Thyme) is a first choice for a tough, sun loving plant, and Baby's Tears (Soleirolia soleirolii) is a second choice. Both plants will thrive in small spaces and both will bloom, adding extra interest to your footpath. If you want almost instant results, you can transplant this spring. If you can wait a few weeks for growth to appear, sprinkle seeds between the pavers and keep them watered well until the seedlings appear. I have both plants in my garden and the Thyme is the most resilient of the two. Crushed Thyme leaves have a wonderful fragrance, too, so stepping on the leaves is encouraged!
