Rosemary is a pungent herb that’s great for cooking and very easy to grow.
This evergreen plant emits a spicy aroma from its small, needle-like leaves. You can use rosemary dried or fresh in many various recipes.
If you don’t like the flavor, remember that rosemary is also an attractive, drought-tolerant plant with small, lavender flowers. Both shrub forms and groundcover forms are available.
It’s best to start your rosemary from softwood cuttings or purchase plants from a garden center, as it can be difficult to start from seed.
Your plant will need sandy, well-drained soil and at least six hours of sun. Rosemary is originally from the Mediterranean and prefers dry conditions.
