Trailing Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Prostratus’) Plant Profile!

After a long break, we are happy to continue our individual Texas native plants profiles and today we will put the spotlight on Trailing Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Prostratus’).

 

From the entry:

“Trailing rosemary is a great choice when you are looking for a solid, not too tall, evergreen for full sun. Small blue flower will appear in early spring and continue until mid summer. The plant smells amazing, and can be readily used for cooking purposes. Freshly picked rosemary with baked potatoes is a real delight.  This plant is fuss free, drought tolerant and will be a welcome addition to any low water landscapes. Solid and reliable greenery that will brighten the winter gloom.”
