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. 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!
