Plant of the Month - Rosemary
Rosemary is a perennial evergreen shrub with blue flowers. It is an aromatic and distinctive herb with a sweet, resinous flavor.
Hailing from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, rosemary does best in warm areas with fair humidity, where it can grow into a shrub several feet in height. In fact, rosemary grows so vigorously in ideal conditions that it can become a bit of a burden, if not managed properly!
This herb can be grown outdoors as a perennial shrub in Zones 7 and warmer. In colder areas, it should be kept in a pot and brought indoors for the winter.
Rosemary is often used for seasoning poultry, lamb, stews, and soups.
Zones: 7 thru 11
Bloom Time: Summer
Flower Color: Blue
Sun Exposure: Full Sun
Soil Type: Loamy, Sandy
