The Q&A Archives: Is there some kind of plant I can walk on??

Question: I have stones that we have placed in an area around our deck; we use it as a patio as well. I was wondering if there was some kind of ground cover that we could put between the stones that would help the look. I need something that would do well in full sun, something that grows fast and will not be damaged by walking on it. Is there anything like that??

Answer: There is indeed! Try planting wooly thyme. I takes foot traffic, releases a wonderful scent when tread upon and produces purple flowers in early spring. Enjoy!
