Description

  • Trailing herb
  • Attracts bees
  • Aromatic
  • Low growing

Slightly slower growing than the traditional upright rosemary, this low growing variety with its graceful arching stems covered in blue flowers in spring, is the perfect evergreen to trail over a wall or container.

Plant care

  • Height: 30-60cm
  • Type: Hardy
  • Aspect: Sun
  • Soil: Any/alkaline
  • Flower colour: Blue
  • Flowering period: April - May

This pungently scented herb grows best in full sun and certainly it requires the midday and afternoon sun to grow well. It can be grown in the ground, but looks especially stunning trailing over containers. It likes a well drained soil and pinching out the tips will help keep it more bushy.

Usage

Rosemary’s intense flavour has made it a valuable herb in the kitchen where it is used traditionally, fresh or dried with lamb and other meats, with roast potatoes, on pizza, in pasta sauces and bread, biscuits both savoury and sweet, cakes and desserts.
Medicinally it is used as a circulatory stimulant increasing blood to the brain, making it useful for memory and concentration. An infusion of the leaves rinsed through dark hair is said to leave it glossy and bright.
Rosemary has long been associated with remembrance and used to remember and honour loved ones.
