Tried & True Rosemary

A beautiful evergreen perennial shrub, rosemary has narrow, aromatic green leaves that are reminiscent of pine. It is used for seasoning meats, savoury dishes, roasted potatoes, and baking. It prefers light, sandy soil mixed with lime and a south-facing planting area. To protect plants from winterkill, trim back. This will encourage new branching in the spring.
