Rosemary has long been a favorite in the garden for obvious reasons – the scent its leaves give off, its pretty little purple flowers, and its low maintenance personality. As a culinary seasoning, it complements not only meats and vegetables, but also brings a zingy flavor to breads. A beautiful ornamental with upright growth habit, it grows well in containers indoors or outside. Rosemary is perennial in USDA zone 8 or warmer, otherwise treated as an annual unless grown indoors. Deer resistant.
