Rosemary Care Guide

Rosmarinus officinalis, Mint family, Herbal flavor, Tender perennial shrub. Well-drained, evenly moist soil. Full sun to partial shade.

Grow rosemary in full sun or partial shade in alkaline, well-drained, evenly moist soil.

Rosemary is native to the rocky coasts of France and Spain, but is now cultivated as a culinary herb throughout the world. It is an excellent plant to include in seaside gardens.

Rosemary is a tender perennial shrub that can grow three to six feet tall. Hardy only to zone 7-8, it is grown as an annual in many areas of the country. It is evergreen with needle like leaves. In warm climates it makes a very attractive low hedge.

The pale blue flowers (occasionally white-rose, pale lavender or dark blue) appear in mid to late spring, and sometimes again in summer. The flowers have a flavor reminiscent of the leaves, but much less pungent.

Rosemary is happily cultivated as a container plant. It can easily be trained as topiary, commonly in a tree form, a rounded form or a circular wreath form.
