Rosemary

Description

Rosmarinus officinalis

Rosemary can be grown singly as a free standing shrub to 1.7 m or used with others to form a clipped hedge. Best grown in full sun in rich soil and is semi-drought tolerant. The many thin leaves are very aromatic and are frequently used in cooking as flavouring for meat dishes particularly lamb and chicken. Also goes well with fried potatoes and Italian dishes. 1,500 to 2,300 m.
