Creeping thyme and juglone/walnut

Asked February 26, 2019, 1:06 AM EST

Hello! I live in st paul and have a shaded back yard from a neighbors black walnut tree. I understand some shade tolerant grasses will grow (kentucky bluegrass &fescue), but i would LOVE to fill my backyard under the canopy with creeping thyme. I just am struggling to find out if this is a plant tolerant of the juglone chemical. Tips on any delicious smelling, non-grass, that can manage some light traffic would be amazing! Thank you!
