Description:

Quickly forms an upright hedge of aromatic, needle-like evergreen foliage. Profuse clear blue flowers add a charming effect. Leaves can be used as a flavorful spice in cooking. Takes to pruning well, but is equally wonderful when left in natural rustic form without pruning. A great choice for screening or in carefree, waterwise gardens.

History

Rosmarinus officinalis has been a part of garden lore for centuries. In ancient times rosemary was believed to strengthen memory; in literature and folklore it is an emblem of remembrance and fidelity. In Shakespeare's Hamlet, Ophelia says, "There's Rosemary...that's for remembrance." Rich in aromatic oil, rosemary releases its fragrance when walked upon or crushed. In medieval times, it was thrown on the floor to mask body odor and poor sanitation practices. Medieval gardeners used it to ward away evil spirits. It was also used to season and disguise the taste and smell of gamy meat. Today, Rosemary is used for potpourri, medicinal tea, and as a culinary herb.
