Plant Families / Rosmarinus - Rosemary
Native to the Mediterranean region, Rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis) is an aromatic, perennial evergreen shrub with so many uses that no garden should be without it! The intensely fragrant foliage releases its fresh scent when brushed against, making Rosemary a great addition along paths and walkways or in containers on sunny patios or decks. Let the prostrate varieties attractively creep over walls or blanket the ground when too dry, sandy or rocky for other ground covers. And not to mention the herb garden. Rosemary has been used as a medicinal and aromatic herb for thousands of years.
