Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary)

Rosemary

Rosmarinus officinalis

Discontinued

Mediterranean native that is no stranger to hot and dry conditions, on top of rocky soils. The highly aromatic needle-like leaves are complimented in the late winter with small blue flowers, no more than one inch in diameter and somewhat tubular. 

Rosemary requires well-drained alkaline soils, otherwise will be easily prone to disease and dieback when overwatered. No matter the location in the landscape, full sun must be provided. The foliage is commonly used in cooking, aroma therapy, and for medicinal purposes.
