Rosemary is a fabulous aromatic herb for arid gardens. It is a beautiful foundation shrub that provides year around coverage of utilities and footings. The plant is a staple for banks, and both cut and fill slopes where it thrives in full sun with express drainage. Add it to the Mediterranean parterre garden as a hedge or single specimen. Treasured for parterres in the French or Italian style. Naturalizes in hot dry climates to add interest to native plantings or international xeriscape composition. Belongs in every kitchen garden, veggie plot and herb garden. Rosemary makes an excellent potted plant, particularly in terra cotta for porch or patio.
