2024 Seed Catalog

Rosemary - Rosmarinus officinalis




Rosmarinus officinalis

Rosemary is a tasty addition to many of your favorite dishes. It is a tough, easy to grow evergreen shrub with showy blue flowers in late spring and summer. In warmer areas plants may repeat bloom nearly any month of year. We have seen rosemary burst into flower as late as November, and as early as February.

Bees love rosemary flowers. Few plants attract bees as rosemary can. Plant height is variable, from 18-60 in. tall. Plants can be clipped to almost any size.

Rosemary is super heat tolerant, will thrive along driveways or roadsides. Deer are common where we live; they do not touch rosemary. The North Carolina Cooperative Extension rates rosemary as highly salt tolerant: plants were found to tolerate direct salt spray. Winter hardy to zone 6. Seeds are primed for fast, even germination.
