Rosemary is a perennial evergreen shrub with blue flowers. It is a pungent and distinctive plant with a sweet, resinous flavor. Rosemary is ideal for a rock garden or the top of a dry wall. It is used for poultry, lamb, stews, and soups.
Rosmarinus officinalis, commonly known as rosemary, is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers, native to the Mediterranean region.
Rosemary is one of those wonderful herbs that makes a beautiful ornamental plant as well as a welcome culinary seasoning. Its Latin name, Rosmarinus officinalis, means "dew of the sea" and rosemary is most closely associated with the cooking of the Mediterranean area.
However you don't need perfect sunshine, sea mist or even a never ending summer to successfully grow rosemary. In fact, more rosemary plants suffer from too much attention than from too little.
Since it is attractive and drought tolerant, rosemary is used as an ornamental plant in gardens and for xeriscape landscaping, especially in regions of Mediterranean climate. It is considered easy to grow and pest-resistant. Rosemary can grow quite large and retain attractiveness for many years
Rosemary requires only sunlight, good drainage and ample air circulation. A sandy, well draining soil and 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight daily will have the plants off and running in no time.
There is little need to fertilize the plants. A basic 5-10-5 fertilizer applied in the spring and perhaps a foliar spray mid season will keep the plants healthy and happy.
Where winters are somewhat severe and sustained temperatures are well below 30 degrees F, rosemary plants will have to be brought indoors for the coldest months.
If low temps persist, bring a few plants indoors. Put plants in terra-cotta pots and water only as needed to prevent drying out. Rosemary doesn’t need a lot of water whether indoors or out, but it does need to be put in front of a sunny south facing window. If this is not possible, use artificial light. Heat is not critical. A cool room will do fine. Move the plants back outdoors once the frost-free date has passed.
- For a head start, plant the seeds or cuttings indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost.
- Plant the seeds/cuttings in well-drained soil. For best growth, the soil should be around 70ºF.
- Be sure to give your plants enough room to grow. Rosemary grows to about 4 feet tall and spreads about 4 feet as well.
- In the garden, plant near beans, cabbage, carrots, and sage.
- After the plant flowers, remember to trim the plant.
- For fresh rosemary in the winter, grow the plant indoors in a pot. Be sure to put it in bright light and cool temperatures.
- Prune regularly so that the plant won't get lanky.
- Water the plants evenly throughout the growing season.
- Be sure to get cuttings or divide the plant for next season.
- Rosemary is used as a decorative plant in gardens and has many culinary and medical uses.
- The plant is said to improve the memory.
- The leaves are used to flavor various foods, such as stuffings and roast meats.
