The good news is:
If a plant is needed to cover an area in full sun, in almost any kind of soil, and that is going to be neglected (no water, no mulch, no fertilizer, no weeding around it), this is the perfect plant.
BUT . . .
The bad news is . . .
This plant is a bully! It does not run up to other plants, say "excuse me, please," and politely trot around them - it runs them over!
I planted Mother of Thyme, hoping it would fill in the area between other low growing plants along a flagstone path. Instead, it swallowed them alive! Slowly at first, and then in great, big gulps! Some survived until the thyme was pulled out; others were suffocated, never to return!!
So, if you decide to plant MoT, beware! You have been warned!!

A very pretty Thyme. It transplants well and grows fast. I think it looks nice year round. My information says that it is hardy in zones 4-9. Blooms in July in my garden.

A very fast-spreading groundcover. Grows almost anywhere, but is not invasive. Easy to shear to maintain size and height. Blooms non-stop for about 4 months in the summer. Add to that the fact that it is tolerent of foot traffic, and it makes a great grass-lawn replacement that never needs care or irrigation.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Cherry Valley, Illinois
South Bend, Indiana
Pleasant Lake, Minnesota
