Features

notes

Rosmarinus officinalis Prostratus is a trailing form of perennial Rosemary (known as Creeping Rosemary), grown as a culinary herb. It has the same smell and flavour, but with a spreading and trailing habit ideal for baskets and containers. Alternatively place by a path where you will brush against it as you pass.

Insights

Rosemary is an evergreen plant hailing from the Mediterranean, with aromatic, dark green, leaves, and small blue-purple flowers which are highly attractive to bees and other pollinators. The leaves are superb for use with anything roasted and in stews. If you remember, use the shoot tips to make a memory restoring tea...
