A highly aromatic rosemary with finely-textured foliage and a unique habit. While not an actual prostrate variety, it’s still more of a spiller than an upright bush with long, arching branches with turn a bit upward at the tip – like fox tails! Reaching up to 4’ tall and 5’ wide, it’s an excellent choice for a low, dense shrub or a showy specimen for a large container where it can cascade to its heart’s content! It also produces pretty, bee-loved, light blue flowers Spring thru early Fall. Tough as nails, long-lived, drought tolerant, heat tolerant, insect and disease resistant, deer proof, and super easy to grow. It can handle a variety of soils, even clay, but is happiest in fertile, well-drained soil. Harvest the leaves as needed - plants remain evergreen down to 20°F. Use the leaves fresh over roast meats or veggies, incorporate them into homemade bread, or dry them for use in sachets to keep your drawers fragrant. Prune to shape.
